Benjamin Y. Tan was born and raised in Singapore. A pathologist by day, he spends much of his time looking down microscopes and crafting precise medical reports. His imaginary life is influenced by the humid richness of the tropics, old Hong Kong movies, Japan (which he tries to visit as often as he can), harsh Midwestern winters (where he has family), and a messy assortment of books he cannot quite find enough space for. He aims to leave readers of his creative writing with a firm feeling of place and vague sense of disquiet.
