He has been compared to Dickens, Balzac, and Isaac Babel. Yet he tells the reader only, and precisely, as much as is needed to make his deceptively simple fiction resonate on many levels” The New York Times. Ha Jin came to the United States as an adult barely able to speak English.
He still has difficulty speaking it and has said that the main impetus for writing is the opportunity it affords him to sit down and tue and re-write, edit and re-edit, and start all over again if necessary until he is satisfied with the result.
He uses his acquired language as a storyteller and poet of the first rank who bears witness to the collision between personal experience in all its pain, beauty, and complexity and the arbitrary suffering that History, Fate, and Destiny inflict upon all human beings, whether they be powerful or powerless. His sympathy for every human being in all his or her particularity is unsurpassed among contemporary American writers.
