May 24, 2021 | 1 book mentioned

Lithub has an excerpt from C Pam Zhang‘s appearance on the Thresholds podcast with Jordan Kisner, where she discusses how her idea of home has shifted since the release of her novel, How Much of These Hills Is Gold. “I’ve come to terms with the fact that this idea of home is going to be more of an emotional and a psychic idea for me,” Zhang says. “I may never have the luxury of claiming an entire country or even an entire city as the place where I feel completely at home. I think that home is, as sappy as it sounds, it is people. It’s individual living rooms of friends. It’s communities, maybe internet communities; the people who just get what I get and have had similar lived experiences.”

is a writer and illustrator. She is the author of two illustrated books, Last Night's Reading (Penguin Books, 2015) and Sanpaku (Archaia 2018).
