Bestselling non-fiction author Amy Chua is bringing her fiction debut, a stunning historical thriller, to Village Books!

Amy Chua's debut novel, The Golden Gate, is a sweeping, evocative, and highly compelling historical thriller that paints a vibrant portrait of a California buffeted by the turbulent crosswinds of a world at war and a society about to undergo massive change. The Golden Gate takes place against the backdrop of a deeply polarized, wartime America shaped by explosive immigration, extraordinary wealth, groundbreaking forensic advances and bitter class and racial conflict. In writing this book, Chua drew on her passion for history as well as her own roots in the San Francisco Bay Area, infusing the story with actual historical events. Moving and timely, this is invigorating crime fiction at its very best.

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor of Law at Yale Law School. She is an internationally bestselling author of several non-fiction titles, including her 2011 memoir Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, which was a runaway international bestseller that has been translated into over 30 languages. Chua graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College and cum laude from Harvard Law School. After practicing on Wall Street for a few years, she joined the Yale Law School faculty in 2001. The Golden Gate is her fiction debut.
