Asako Serizawa, author INHERITORS (Doubleday), launches her debut story collection in conversation with author Molly Antopol at a virtual event hosted by Brookline Booksmith via Crowdcast on Tuesday, July 14 at 7:00 pm (ET).

From the O. Henry Prize-winning author comes a beautiful and brutal exploration of lives fragmented by the Pacific side of World War II. INHERITORS spans more than 150 years, with stories set in multiple locations in colonial and postcolonial Asia and the United States, painting a kaleidoscopic portrait of its characters as they grapple with the legacies of loss, imperialism, and war. These characters walk the line between the devastating realities of war and the banal needs of everyday life as they struggle to reconcile their experiences with the changing world.

Asako Serizawa was born in Japan and grew up in Singapore, Jakarta, and Tokyo. A graduate of Tufts University, Brown University, and Emerson College, she has received two O. Henry Prizes, a Pushcart Prize, and a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award. A recent fiction fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, she currently lives in Boston.
