Great post on Mediabistro's GalleyCat about National Book Award nominee American Born Chinese. Says the article,
"A win for Yang would be almost as earth-shaking as Art Spiegelman's Pulitzer for Maus," comments Heidi MacDonald at The Beat. "Just to be a finalist is a huge accomplishment for Yang and First Second."I've noted for a little while the nice blog First Second created, where Mr. Yang currently has posted thoughts on his nomination. There were also a couple really good American Born Chinese posts in the past, particularly this piece on the origins of the book. If you're still unfamiliar with this graphic novel, find it and read it. Best GN of the year, bar none.
