He is married to the writer Joan Burbick, and has lived and worked in the Pacific Northwest for most of the last sixty years, with extensive teaching appointments in Beijing, Changchun and Hong Kong. He was awarded a United Nations research grant for his last novel The Man Who Dammed the Yangtze partly set at China's Three Gorges Dam.

Since a MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop in 1963, he has published more than 350 poems, stories, photographs, essays and extended interviews in magazines, newspapers and anthologies, as well as thirteen books. Among his many honors, he has received three National Endowment for the Arts awards, Fulbright and Lingnan Professorships, a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio residency, Knox College's Alumni Achievement Award, and the American Book Award in 2002 for his Lipstick and Other Stories.
