Folio-750x400

There was a very cool shout out from one of my favorite lit magazines (and writers) at Electric Literature about the Folio Prize. Describing it as “one of the most talked about literary awards” and a rival to the “Man Booker award,” Lincoln Michel also mentions Bald New World from “up and comers like”, dah dah dah, yeah, Peter Tieryas Liu. Very cool to see this to say the least. There’s also been some fantastic coverage of the award at the Los Angeles Times and the Guardian, links below.
