Barker at the 2015 Texas Book Festival
Susan Barker (born 1978) is a British novelist. She has an English father and a Chinese-Malaysian mother and grew up in East London. She studied at Leeds University and undertook the graduate writing programme at Manchester University. She writes primarily about Asia.
She is the author of three novels: Sayonara Bar, which Time (magazine) called "a cocktail of astringent cultural observations, genres stirred and shaken, subplots served with a twist", and The Orientalist and the Ghost, both published by Doubleday and longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize.
Her third novel The Incarnations is a 'stunning tale of a modern Beijing taxi driver being pursued by his soulmate across a thousand years of Chinese history' and was published by Doubleday in 2014.
