MFAW-WA Faculty member Aimee Liu’s new novel Glorious Boy had a spectacular launch week, capped by its selection by Parade as a Best Beach Read of 2020 and by the NY Post as a Best Book of the Week.

The author Pico Iyer gave Glorious Boy this enthusiastic endorsement:

“The most memorable and original novel I’ve read in ages. Aimee Liu takes us into a set of islands–an entire world–most of us have barely heard of, and evokes every side in a multi-cultural conversation with sympathy and rare understanding.”

A review in the Asian Review of Books described Glorious Boy as “reminiscent of the tone and atmosphere of Somerset Maugham and George Orwell’s Asia-set novels.”

Aimee’s publication week events are all recorded online:
