About the Author

Edith Maude Eaton (1865-1914), who took the pen name Sui Sin Far, was the first Asian American, man or woman, to publish fiction in the United States. The daughter of a Chinese mother and an English father, Eaton began publishing articles about Montreal's Chinese Canadian community in English-language newspapers at twenty-five. At thirty-three she moved to the United States, and, asserting her identity as a Chinese American writer (despite her ability to "pass" as white), published stories about Chinese Americans at a time when the United States Congress banned Chinese immigration to the United States.
