About Charles Yu

Charles Yu Biography

He is the author of the short story collections Third Class Superhero and Sorry Please Thank You as well as the novels How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe and Interior Chinatown, which won the National Book Award. He was selected by the National Book Foundation as one of the "5 under 35" honorees in 2007. The 2020 National Book Award for literature went to his second book, Interior Chinatown. Yu was chosen by the National Book Foundation in 2007 as one of its 5 Under 35 authors. This program highlights the work of the upcoming generation of fiction writers by asking five National Book Award winners and finalists to choose one fiction author under the age of 35 whose work they find particularly exciting and promising. Richard Powers picked Yu for the award. His story, notably Problems for Self-Study from the Harvard Review, was singled out for special attention in the Pushcart Prize Anthology XXVIII. Additionally, Yu's tale, Third Class Superhero, won the 2004 Sherwood Anderson Fiction Award from the Mid-American Review. Regarding anthologies, Yu worked as a guest editor for the 2017 edition of The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and The Best American Series. Yu earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in molecular and cellular biology from the University of California, Berkeley. He also minored in creative writing while there. Yu wrote poetry rather than fiction and participated in various poetry workshops led by authors such as Thom Gunn and Ishmael Reed. He graduated from Columbia Law School with a doctorate in law.
