I’m excited to share with you the news that “One World Two: Global Anthology of Short Stories” is just released! It includes one of my new short stories, “Nobody’s Talking About Falling in Love,” a tale about a female college student and an army sergeant in the wake of the 1989 Tiananmen crackdown. My inspiration comes from the one-month military training I experienced when I attended Sun Yat-Sen University (Zhongshan University) in Guangzhou.
According to the book’s publisher New Internationalist, the anthology “contains representative literature from all over the world, conveying the reader on thought-provoking journeys across continents, cultures and landscapes…(it) features established stars such as Edwidge Danticat (Breath, Eyes, Memory), Viet Thanh Nguyen (The Sympathizer) and Aminatta Forna (The Hired Man) and authors who are steadily building a reputation such as Fan Wu, Ana Menéndez and Daniel Alarcon.”
World Literature Today says, “One World [Vol 1] captures a moment in history representing the changing and evolving world that we are in while reminding us of the enduring nature of the human condition.”
I’m reading the anthology right now and thoroughly enjoying it. I hope you’ll also find the book interesting and inspiring.
Also, I’d like to mention that all of my proceeds from this book will be donated to the International Red Cross.
