Yiyun Li

A Remarkable Memoir

In 2012, Yiyun Li, the award-winning Chinese-American fiction writer, twice tried to kill herself. When she left hospital, everyone was full of advice: ‘You should do this or that; you must isolate yourself less.’ But instead she wrote her memoir, the remarkable and brave Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life, a meditation on identity, her past, and how literature itself lives and gives life. Come and meet a gifted writer. Chaired by Jenny Niven.
