W A N G P I N G Wang Ping was born in Shanghai and grew up on a small island in the East China Sea. After three years of farming in a mountain village, she attended Beijing University. In 1985 she left China to study in the United States, earning her doctorate from New York University. Her works include the short-story collection American Visa; the novel Foreign Devil; two poetry collections, Of Flesh & Spirit and The Magic Whip; and a cultural study of footbinding in China, Aching for Beauty, which won the 2000 Eugene Kayden Award for best book in the humanities. She is also the editor and cotranslator of the anthology New Generation: Poetry from China Today. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, and teaches in the creative writing program at Macalester College. Seventeen years ago, I walked into a creative writing class by accident and started writing. I wrote in two languages, Chinese, my mother tongue, and English, which I studied in my early twenties before I came to the usa. There was a huge gap between my Chinese poems and the English ones, and I couldn't see it until I tried to translate
