Fiona and Jane is a collection of stories that follows the evolving friendship of two Taiwanese American women over the course of two decades. Although the book is written by a Taiwanese American woman, Jean Chen Ho, the stories are not autobiographical. The book is not a novel. The topics are serious, the dialogue is humorous, and the reading experience is lovely. I spoke with Jean Chen Ho about Fiona and Jane on publication day. Here’s our conversation.

Fiona and Jane by Jean Chen Ho was published by Viking.
