On Tuesday 7/25, Taiwanese-American writer Ed Lin will be joining Tiger Lily on KALX from noon-3pm. He discovered punk rock as a teenager working at his family’s downmarket New Jersey motel and will be sharing some musical selections that shaped his life on the show.
Ed’s first novel, Waylaid, was published by Kaya Press in 2002, and he’s the first author to win three Asian American Literary Awards. He has also written a series of crime novels set in 1976 Manhattan Chinatown. His current series, set in Taipei, Taiwan, features murder mysteries that involve a night-market vendor. Death Doesn’t Forget, published by Soho Crime, is the latest book in that series.
