Yiyun Li as Finalist

"Gold Boy, Emerald Girl" a finalist in the 2010 Story Prize.

And certainly deserving--a magnificent capstone to a superior collection, "Gold Boy, Emerald Girl," captures all of the poignancy and the beautiful humane approach Ms. Li takes in all of her stories.  As much as you'd like to leave one of her stories hating some of the characters, you discover that it is not possible because Ms. Li has shown you, perfectly, how human they are and what their connection with you is.
