Lin Haiyin (林海音; March 18, 1918 - December 1, 2001) was a Taiwanese writer of Chinese ethnicity. She is now best remembered for her sensitive memoir 城南舊事 (Chengnan Jiushi, "My Memories of Old Beijing", 1960), which is a novelistic tribute to her childhood reminiscences of Beijing.
Born in Osaka, Japan, where her father (Jiaoling, Guangdong origin) worked as a merchant, Lin's parents moved first to Taiwan before settling in Beijing when she was 5. She would spend her next 25 years there. At Beijing Lin graduated from the News and Broadcast Institute as a journalist for Shijie Ribao ("World News Daily").
In 1948 Lin returned with her husband and family to Taiwan, where she became the editors of several important literary periodicals and newspapers, and where she would reside for the rest of her life. Altogether she published some 18 books, including novels, short story collections, radio drama and children's literature, mostly dealing with the feminine experience. Her most famous book remains 城南舊事 (Chengnan Jiushi, lit. "My Memories of south of the Capital", 1960). In it Lin records in lively, evocative, third-person prose her childhood memories, ending with the death of her father, from the eyes of a precocious, impressionable young girl.
