(Zhang, Jenny) Jenny Zhang was born in Shanghai and raised in Queens. She is the author of the poetry collection Dear Jenny, We Are All Find, the non-fiction chapbook Hags, and the e-book The Selected Jenny Zhang. Her essay “How It Feels” was nominated for a National Magazine Award in 2015. She holds degrees from Stanford University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Sour Heart: Stories (Lenny) is a sly debut story collection that conjures the experience of adolescence through the eyes of Chinese-American girls growing up in New York City. Narrated by the daughters of Chinese immigrants who fled imperiled lives as artists back home only to struggle to stay afloat—dumpster diving for food and scamming Atlantic City casino buses to make a buck—these seven stories showcase Zhang’s compassion, moral courage, and a perverse sense of humor. A darkly funny and intimate rendering of girlhood, Sour Heart examines what it means to belong to a family, to find your home, leave it, reject it, and return again.
