Big things are happening for MFAW-WA Faculty Member Aimee Liu’s forthcoming novel Glorious Boy, which Publishers Weekly says “upends the clichés of the white savior narrative.” Join her celebrations and appearances as the novel launches tomorrow!
Last week it received TWO STARRED advance reviews!
*Booklist https://bit.ly/3ffkNLF wrote: “This fascinating novel examines the many dimensions of war, from the tragedy of loss to the unexpected relationships formed during conflict.. Liu’s prose is masterful. A good choice for book groups and for readers who are unafraid to be swept away.”
*Library Journal’s https://bit.ly/3fjAKRp concluded: “A riveting amalgam of history, family epic, anticolonial/antiwar treatise, cultural crossroads, and more, this latest from best-selling author Liu is a fascinating, irresistible marvel.”
