Author of the Prize-Winning Story Collection, The Boat

 

 

“It’s a precept all writers have heard: write what you know. Nam Le, a Vietnam-born corporate attorney raised in Australia, did just the opposite, doing copious research and penning fictional stories about adolescents in Colombia or another tale set in the days before an atomic bomb is dropped on Hiroshima. The result is a collection called The Boat, which is garnering the kind of praise usually reserved for established literary heavyweights.”—The New York Times

 

"You may never have heard of Nam Le, but with the publication of his first collection of short stories, The Boat, you can expect to hear much more about him in the future. ... Not yet 30, he is already an extraordinarily accomplished and sophisticated writer.”  — San Francisco Chronicle
