Dreams Come True with Sarah Shun-lien Bynum
“Original” and “unique” are words used often to describe Sarah Bynum’s writing, but so too are “lovable” and “charming.” Antonya Nelson said Ms. Hempel Chronicles is a “coming of age” story where we realize one never really comes of age. Madeleine is Sleeping is a collage of dreams and dreaming, love and longing, and solitude and death. Madeleine was a finalist for the National Book Award and Ms. Hempel was a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award.
But she doesn’t just write novels, her work has appeared in The New Yorker, New York Times Book Review, Best American Short Stories and beyond. Read more about her award winning books and stories on Sarah’s website.
