Frank Chin (趙健秀; pinyin: Zhào Jiànxiù) (born February 25, 1940), Chinese-American author and playwright.


  • What seems to hold Asian American literature together is the popularity among whites of Maxine Hong Kingston's Woman Warrior (450,000 copies sold since 1976); David Henry Hwang's F.O.B. (Obie, best off-Broadway play) and M. Butterfly (Tony, best Broadway play); and Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club. These works are held up before us as icons of our pride, symbols of our freedom from the icky-gooey evil of . . . Chinese culture.
