"A welcome read in American contemporary literature. Though I Get Home is an intimate and complex look into Malaysian culture and politics, and a reminder of the importance of art in the struggle for social justice." --Ana Castillo, author ofSo Far from Godand prize judge

In these stories, characters navigate fate via deft sleights of hand: A grandfather gambles on the monsoon rains; a consort finds herself a new assignment; a religious man struggles to keep his demons at bay. Central to the book is Isabella Sin, a small-town girl--and frustrated writer--transformed into a prisoner of conscience in Malaysia's most notorious detention camp.

Winner of the Louise Meriwether First Book Prize, YZ Chin's debut reexamines the relationship between the global and the intimate. Against a backdrop of globalization, individuals buck at what seems inevitable--seeking to stake out space for the inner motivations that shift, but still persist, in the face of changing and challenging circumstances.

YZ Chinwas born and raised in Taiping, Malaysia. She now lives in New York, working as a software engineer by day and a writer by night.
