Biography

Jiro Adachi

Born and raised in New York City to a Japanese father and Hungarian mother, Jiro Adachi's first language was not exactly broken English --- more like malleable English. Mr. Adachi drew on both his experiences as a bike messenger and a teacher of English as a Foreign Language for this novel's portrait of bike boys and immigrants in New York. He lives with his wife and daughter in New York City.
