About the Author

Alice Stephens was born in Korea and came to the United States as one of the first generation of interracial adoptees. Her work has appeared in Urban Mozaik, Flung, Banana Writers, and the Washington Independent Review of Books, which publishes her monthly column, Alice in Wordland. She has lived and studied on four continents, and the one constant in her life, besides writing, has been travel. Famous Adopted People is her debut novel. She currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Reviews

"A biting critique of identity that lampoons genetic ties and ethnic stereotypes... The increasing tension and outlandishness of Stephens' work lends itself to a poignant take on the topic of family." --Kirkus Reviews
"Peppered with moments of political satire and heartfelt introspection, Stephens's novel also offers a fun-house depiction of the absurdities and horrors of the surveillance state. This is an excellent debut." --Publishers Weekly
