A Wealth Of Short Stories

Her chances of staying on in the USA may still be discussed, but what's not in question is the size of her bank balance. As this report has it, Yiyun Li's A Thousand Years of Good Prayers has so far won the $40,000 Whiting Award, the €50,000 Frank O'Connor Short Story Award, and more recently, the $10,000 Guardian First Book Prize. She also has a $200,000 book deal. Hmmm...almost enough to be able to afford a flat in Mumbai.
