The short stories in Jenny Zhangs debut collection Sour Heart started out as separate tales, but soon the young author found herself in possession of the story of a community — told through  moments in the lives of Chinese-American children growing up in a New York City neighborhood.   Insightful and wry, ferocious and beautiful, these interlinking stories earned Sour Heart a spot in Barnes and Noble’s Discover Great New Writers program. In this episode, the author joins Miwa Messer to talk about her book, navigating family, and coming of age in America.
