Susie Luo, PAPER NAMES: A Novel

Zibby is joined by author Susie Luo to discuss her highly-praised debut novel Paper Names, which tells the sharp and propulsive story of two families who are brought together by an unexpected act of violence. One is a Chinese family of immigrants, and the other is a wealthy white family with a secret. Luo talks about identity in connection to her complex characters and herself. She also shares her journey to publishing this book, from college to corporate work to writing full-time. The episode concludes with a peek into her writing process and the work she has in progress!
