Kaya Press is re-publishing Tsiang’s final novel — And China Has Hands — this month, and Editor Floyd Cheng, and New Yorker Culture writer Hua Hsu, who recently wrote an autobiography of Tsiang, will be leading a reading and discussion about Tsiang’s work and life.
More about Tsiang: An immigrant from China to the US in the 1930s, Tsiang was self-publishing work as part of the downtown communist scene in New York City–then, later in his life, he moved to Los Angeles and became a Hollywood actor and extra with roles in major television shows like Bonanza and My Three Sons and in films like (the original) Ocean’s Eleven.
