Sarah Z. Sleeper’s novel Gaijin, debuted in 2020 to glowing reviews. One reviewer said, “This story of the ‘unwelcome foreigner’ is not an easy one, and it takes an award-winning journalist like Sarah Sleeper to give it the precision, sensitivity, and depth it deserves. The Far East and the Midwest are both on trial as Sleeper investigates the past and present of Japanese-American relations through a haunting, unforgettable story of love lost.”

In the recent past Sarah’s story, “A Few Innocuous Lines,” won an award from Writer’s Digest. Her non-fiction essay, “On Getting Vivian,” was published in The Shanghai Literary Review. Her poetry was published in A Year in Ink and others, and exhibited at the Bellarmine Museum. She has an MFA from Fairfield University and in her previous life as a reporter, she won three journalism awards. She lives in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with her husband, two dogs and a cat. Her daughter, Vivian, is in college in Boston. Sarah is hard at work on her second novel.
