Welcome

Hello, my name is Berlin Fang.  I am the Director of Instructional Design at Abilene Christian University, the Chinese translator of The Sound and the Fury, Let the Great World Spin, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, author of Tea Eggs under the Star and Spangled Banner. My career is an unlikely mixture of course design, fiction translation, small-time writing and blogging, which makes total sense in my mind as they all involve a search for dynamic equivalence and cross-cultural understanding.

I came from China to New York in 2002 but kept moving south to West Virginia, Oklahoma, and finally to Texas.  Some suspect I follow the migration of the monarch butterflies.  The truth is that I just want to avoid parallel parking. I now live in Texas with my family and quite a number of pets. I can be contacted through the contact page or at berlinfang@gmail.com.
