was in my graduate program and, as I have told him on several sentimental post-wine occasions, I think he was probably the best writer of any of us. (Except you, any of my other classmates reading this.)
I was lucky to read excerpts of his novel when he was a classmate, but I haven’t read the whole thing. And I’m sort of glad of that.
Because I am thrilled to announce that his novel, Southern Cross the Dog, will be published by Amistad in four short months (May 2013). This means that I will get to read the whole thing in one go with fresh eyes. And it shall have a pretty cover on it. I can’t wait.
I am ALSO thrilled to announce that Bill Cheng has a Tumblr! What! Follow him immediately.
(Side note: hey Bill, do you know what happens when you type in bill cheng dot tumblr dot com, as I just did accidentally? Probably.)
