[Introduction To Lao Writers] TC Huo

Continuing our overview of Lao American writers, TC Huo is a Laotian American author, of Chinese descent, who emigrated from Laos to the United States in 1980 and now lives in Santa Clara, California. He has written books such as A Thousand Wings and Land of Smiles. In 2001, he received the award for adult fiction from the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association.

His books have been reviewed favorably in the New York Times. Hopefully it won't be too long before we see new work from him and greater recognition with the community for his efforts to bring the perspective of Laotians to the world of arts and letters. It would be wonderful to see him invited to literary events and festivals. That's he successfully brought two novels to publication is quite an accomplishment.
