Ed Lin Literary Salon: October 16, Berkeley

Join Mystery Readers NorCal for an evening with author Ed Lin, Sunday night, October 16, 7 p.m. Please post a comment with your email address to RSVP and for directions.

Ed Lin is a journalist by training and an all-around stand-up kinda guy. He’s the author of several books: Waylaid, his literary debut, and his Robert Chow crime series, set in 1970s Manhattan Chinatown: This Is a BustSnakes Can’t Run, and One Red Bastard. Lin, who is of Taiwanese and Chinese descent, is the first author to win three Asian American Literary Awards. Lin lives in New York with his wife, actress Cindy Cheung. Incensed is the second in his Tapei Night Market series.


“Readers will be as caught up in Lin’s rich descriptions of Taiwan’s sights, sounds, and mouthwatering foods as they are in his intriguing characters. ” —Publishers Weekly on Incensed 

“The second entry in Lin’s “Taipei Night Market” series is an exciting mystery with an intriguing hero and cast of characters who will appeal to readers who like international settings in their crime fiction. Mystery fans enchanted by the Asian night markets visited on numerous Travel Channel shows will enjoy a peek behind the curtain, as Taiwan’s history and culture are lightly explored in this story that moves fluidly along to its conclusion.” —Library Journal on Incensed 

 “Ed Lin’s Incensed is a stylish, smart thriller for the mind, heart, and gut. Sex, music, history, politics, food, humor, and just a touch of violence and death—you get it all. And when you're done, you’ll beg for more.” 
Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Edgar Award 

 “Ed Lin's Incensed is his best book ever — and this is the guy who wrote Ghost Month. Its world is so vivid and alive that when you're finished you'll remember it as though you spent a month there. ” —Timothy Hallinan
