Book Talk with Winnie M. Li, AB '00
Visiting from the UK on her US book tour, Winnie will discuss her latest novel COMPLICIT, which The New York Times calls ‘harrowing, timely, and thoroughly book club-worthy.’ The book draws equally upon her experiences as a film producer in the early 2000s, as well as her more recent work as a feminist activist and writer.
COMPLICT has been named:
- New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice
- Best Crime Novels of 2022 and Best Noir Fiction of 2022 – CrimeReads
- Best Crime Novels of 2022 – The Irish Times
- Best Books of 2022 – Glamour
Winnie M Li, AB' 00, is an American author and activist. Her latest novel COMPLICIT draws upon her earlier career in the film industry. She previously wrote for travel guide books, produced independent feature films, and programmed for film festivals. Her debut DARK CHAPTER won The Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize, was nominated for an Edgar Award, and translated into ten languages. She is currently adapting it for the screen. Driven by her own experience of rape, she advocates publicly around sexual violence and consent, and began her PhD research at the London School of Economics. She holds an honorary doctorate of law from the National University of Ireland in recognition of her writing and activism. A New Jersey native, Winnie has lived abroad for over 20 years, and currently lives in the English countryside, with her partner and toddler.
