Description

Maxine Hong Kingston’s first book, “The Woman Warrior,” was published in 1976 and won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her second book, “China Men,” earned the National Book Award. Still today, both books are widely taught in literature and other classes. Kingston has earned additional awards, including the PEN West Award for Fiction for “Tripmaster Monkey,” the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature, and the National Humanities Medal, which was conferred by President Clinton, as well as the title “Living Treasure of Hawai‘i” bestowed by a Honolulu Buddhist church. Her most recent books include a collection of essays, “Hawai‘i One Summer,” and latest novel, “The Fifth Book of Peace.” Kingston is currently Senior Lecturer Emerita at the University of California, Berkeley.
