Wendy Law-Yone

Mexico (1947 - )

Wendy Law-Yone, born in Mandalay, Burma, is a critically acclaimed author of novels and short stories. Law-Yone states that she is "half Burman, a quarter Chinese and a quarter English",[1] but though she did not settle in the United States until she was an adult, she is identified as an Asian American writer.[2] Her novels, The Coffin Tree (1983) and Irrawaddy Tango (1993), were critically well received, with the latter nominated in 1995 for the Irish Times Literary Prize.
