BigWoWo is an awesome site that, in its own words, describes itself as: “an intellectual approach to solving the problems of our day, especially with respect to Asian American cultural issues.” I love Byron’s articles, opinions, and book reviews and highly recommend you visit. When Watering Heaven first came out, my editor at the Kartika Review, Sunny, recommended I send him a review copy. I was thrilled, then, to read his fantastic review of Watering Heaven.
“This book surpassed expectations. In a short story (as opposed to a novel), a writer must choose each word carefully and bring the arc of the narrative together with efficiency. A good short story must be precise. The stories in this collection are imaginative, clever, quick, and fun to read. Peter Tieryas Liu writes with an extraordinary command of language and nuance.”
Thanks Byron and Sunny!
