Han Suyin (1916?-2012)

One notice that I missed earlier this year was the death of Han Suyin (Han Suyin Dies; Wrote Sweeping Fiction. The New York Times 5 Nov. 2012). The Times writer notes some of the criticism directed at Han, but closes by describing her as “an unapologetic patriot.” Perhaps, but before you decide, I suggest reading Simon Leys’s essay on Han, “The Double Vision of Han Suyin.”
