This weekend on NY Times Book Review

No matter how many times you do it, being on the cover of New York Times Book Review is always a big deal. At least for me it is.
This comes out tomorrow, Sunday, February 3.

It is especially exciting because the review is for new translations of the recent Nobel Literary Prize winner Mo Yan. This is the second time I am illustration for Mo Yan’s book review, which I am very honored.

I want to thank AD Rex Bonomelli, editors at Book Review, and  my friend Chien Tsai who is a Chinese Literature scholar at University of Texas Austin who had helped me with this project.
