Heinz Insu Fenkl’s autobiographical novel “Skull Water” (Spiegel & Grau, $28) was 25 years in the making. Born in South Korea and raised there, as well as Germany and the United States, the author said that being a biracial child made him stick out wherever he was. In the 1970s, his family took a cross-country road trip from Washington State to New Jersey to catch a [Military Airlift Command] flight to Germany. “We weren’t allowed to enter diners in the South because we were taken for Native American,” said Fenkl, who’s a professor of English at the State University of New York at New Paltz. “It made my father furious that we would all have to sit in the station wagon to eat. It was also very hard for us to find motels that would allow a white man with a Korean wife and four mixed-race children to stay. So we spent some nights all sleeping in the car.” The author resides with his family in New York’s Hudson Valley.
