Nguyễn Ngọc Tư
Nguyễn Ngọc Tư, a talented and highly acclaimed female writer of the Vietnam Writers Association (Hội Nhà Văn Việt Nam), was born in 1976 in Cà Mau – the southernmost of Vietnam’s 63 provinces. With passion, she writes tirelessly and diligently, choosing the most familiar and endearing subjects from her life as basis for her stories, with a quintessentially Southern tonality that has become a signature of her writing.
Her short story collection Cánh đồng bất tận (Endless Fields) has received numerous awards, including the LiBeraturpreis Prize 2018, and has been adapted for the stage and screen.
In 2019, she was listed by Forbes magazine as one of the Top 50 most influential women in Vietnam of 2018. Nguyễn Ngọc Tư’s works have been reprinted many times and translated into Korean, English, Swedish, and German.
