Ru Freeman: Fiction Editor

“Good fiction is the art of travelling through time, space, events, and interiorities we may never have experienced, but must imagine into being and understand deeply. To me, this work is what both defines our human condition and redeems us. What a gift to be able to play in that world.”

Ru is the author of the novels A Disobedient Girl and On Sal Mal Lane, and she is the 2014 winner of the Sister Mariella Gable Award for Fiction and the Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize for Fiction by an American Woman. She is the editor of the anthology, Extraordinary Rendition: American Writers on Palestine and is a contributing editorial board member of the Asian American Literary Review.
