Deborah Fallows is a writer and a linguist. For the last four years, she and her husband, writer James Fallows, have been crisscrossing the country in their small plane, reporting on the reinvention of small towns for The Atlantic’s American Futures project.
Deb has written extensively on language, education, families and work, China, and travel for The Atlantic, National Geographic, Slate, The New York Times, The LA Times, and The Washington Monthly. Her latest book, Dreaming in Chinese: Mandarin lessons in Life, Love, and Language, is based on her 3-year experience living and working in China. Her first book, A Mother’s Work, about work-life balance, was published in 1985.
