    Nam Le

    Nam Le came to Australia from Vietnam with his parents, when he was less than a year old, as a boat refugee. He went to Melbourne Grammar School and the University of Melbourne, from where he graduated with a BA (Hons) and LLB (Hons). His Arts thesis supervisor was the Australian poet Chris Wallace-Crabbe. He worked as a corporate lawyer and was admitted to the Supreme Court of Victoria in 2003/2004.
    However, he decided to turn to writing, and in 2004 attended the Iowa Writers Workshop in the United States of America where he completed a Masters in Creative Writing. He became fiction editor at the Harvard Review. His first short story was published in Zoetrope in 2006. Nam Le also held fellowships at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown in 2006, and at the Phillips Exeter Academy, in 2007.
    In an interview on Australian ABC radio, he said he turned from law to writing due to his love of reading: I loved reading, and if you asked me why I decided to become a writer, thats the answer right there, because I was a reader and I was just so enthralled and thrilled by the stuff that Id read that I just thought; what could be better? How could you possibly better spend your time than trying to recreate that feeling for other people. In the same interview he said that his first writing was poetry.
    He returned to Australia in 2008, but is moving to Great Britain to take up a writing fellowship at the University of East Anglia.
    When asked about his source of inspiration, Nam Le said in 2008 that I’d say I’m most inspired by my parents for the choices and sacrifices they’ve made. It still boggles me.
