Te-Ping and I discuss her short story collection Land of Big Numbers, how the people she met as a journalist in Beijing inspired some of these stories, what it is like for people who live in a society where many circumstances are outside their control, the universality of intergenerational family stories, and much more.

Land of Big Numbers can be purchased at Murder by the Book. 

Te-Ping’s 2 recommended reads are:

  1. Half in Love: Stories by Maile Meloy
  2. What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky: Stories by Lesley Nneka Arimah
