Xujun Eberlein is originally from China and grew up during the Cultural Revolution. She now writes and lives in the United States. Her debut story collection, Apologies Forthcoming, was published in 2008.
"So much of what I see in English literature about China is 'victim literature,' which tells horror stories of victims during the Cultural Revolution. While that is needed, it gives only a partial picture, and a partial picture hinders understanding."
– Xujun Eberlein
