Although raised in New England, Kaitlin Solimine has considered China a second home for almost two decades. While an undergraduate, she was named a Harvard-Yenching scholar at Beijing University and later received a Fulbright Fellowship to China. She wrote and edited Let's Go: China (St. Martin's Press) and is finishing her first novel, Empire of Glass—an early draft was short-listed for the James Jones First Novel Fellowship. She was the Donald E. Axinn Scholar in Fiction at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference in 2010 and graduated in 2011 from the MFA program in writing at UC-San Diego. She is the recipient of the Dzanc Books/Disquiet International Literary Program award for "work by a North American writer that broadens the landscape of American literature outside of the borders of North America" as judged by Colson Whitehead. An excerpt of her forthcoming novel will be published in Guernica.
