Gus Lee is the only American-born member of a Shanghai family. He grew up in San Francisco and attended West Point until his failing performance in electrical engineering gave him the involuntary opportunity to become an enlisted man. After receiving his law degree from the UC Davis, he rejoined the army and served as general counsel. He resumed civilian life to become a deputy district attorney in Sacramento, then as Director of Attorney Education for the State Bar of California. China Boy is his first novel.
