Hualing Nieh Engle calls herself a tree, with roots in China, the trunk in Taiwan, and the many leaves in Iowa, USA. Born and raised in wartime China, she left Wuhan in 1949 for peace in Taipei, and then left for love in 1964 to the United States. She is the author of 24 books of fiction and non-fiction, which have been translated into various languages. She also initiated the International Writing Program in Iowa, USA – a world-renowned platform for writers since 1967. The co-founder was her now deceased husband, the poet Paul Engle. One Tree Three Lives is also their love story, a novelist and poet who created a strong and visible love.


现年八十七岁的聂华苓生於中国武汉,1949年与家人逃到台湾,后因编辑【自由中国】受白色恐怖牵连,之后赴美与丈夫 Paul Engle创办影响力庞大的爱荷华大学「国际写作计画」。通过他们的「国际写作计划」,世界各地作家越过意识形态聚集一堂。1979年,大陆、台湾和香港的作家隔绝三十载,首次相见於爱荷华。
