From Berkeley California. I enjoy reading, writing, arts and film, running, surfing, international travel. I am a writer and the author of a book called Quiet As They Come. You can check me (email hidden) From my bio: Angie Chau was born in Vietnam. She has also lived in Malaysia, Italy, Spain, Hawaii, and currently resides in California.Released by IG Publishing in 2010, Quiet As They Come was a Finalist in First Fiction for The Commonwealth Club Book of the Year Award and a Finalist in Fiction for the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association Book of the Year Award. The San Francisco Chronicle described Chau’s debut collection as "a powerful mix of tragedy and kindness, of miscommunications and all-too-painful empathy, which bound together are a resonating homage to many an immigrant."
