Yiyun Li Reads “Gold Boy, Emerald Girl”
Yiyun Li, a contributor to the Winter 2004-05 issue and a 2010 recipient of the MacArthur “Genius Grant,” recently took some time to read the title story from her new collection, Gold Boy, Emerald Girl, for The Writers’ Block at KQED.
The story “chronicles what happens when a professor introduces her middle-aged son to her favorite student.”
