The son of a Chinese American father, Jamie Ford is the New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, which won the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature, and Songs of Willow Frost and his latest, Love and Other Consolation Prizes. Having grown up in Seattle, he now lives in Montana with his wife and children.

About Love and Other Consolation Prizes:
A half-Chinese orphan is "offered as a prize in the daily raffle at the [1909 Seattle World's Fair], advertised as 'Healthy boy to a good home for the winning ticket holder.' The woman who 'wins' him is the madam of a notorious brothel who was famous for educating her girls. He becomes a houseboy in her brothel and is befriended by the daughter of the madam, as well as a Japanese girl who works in the kitchen. The friendship and love between these three form the first real family Ernest has ever known"
