W.H. Auden once said that fairy tales “rank next to the Bible in their importance” as a literary influence. The New Yorker’s ‘20 Under 40’ and National Book Award shortlisted fiction writer, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum has written two exquisite novels, including Madeleine is Sleeping, which are both characterized by a dream-like nostalgia and the fantastical. Bynum shares her list of favourite tales and their influences on her own adult ones.

Sarah Bynum is supported by the U.S. Consulate General.
