About the Author

Suzanne Ma is an award-winning journalist and former Associated Press reporter whose work has appeared in numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, the Huffington Post, and Salon, among others. She has a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, where she was awarded the Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship.
Born in Toronto, Suzanne was raised by immigrant parents who insisted she attend Chinese school every Saturday morning. Suzanne’s Chinese lessons continued in Beijing, where she met her husband while studying abroad. His family’s hometown is also Ye Pei’s, and the town’s remarkable three-hundred-year history of emigration inspired this book.
