Congratulations Yiyun for the umpteenth time

I’m two days behind on congratulating my former thesis director on winning the 2006 Guardian First Book Award. I think I need to just change the banner on my blog to “Congratulations Yiyun.” It’s kind of ridiculous how many awards she’s won. And I heard one of her short stories is being made into a movie?? (“Immortality,” I assume. I haven’t looked into it.) I can’t even imagine writing a FIRST BOOK that wins that many awards. Crazy. And very rare. We who were/are at Mills are lucky to know her.
