So this MaLa Literary Journal is an interesting piece of work. Based in Chengdu, it’s published a lot of fantastic work by Asia-based authors, as well as hip cats like National Book Award winner Colum McCann, multi-NY Times Best Seller and Grammy winner David Sedaris, Man Asia Literary Prize nominee Murong Xuecun, and National Book Award nominee and MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Peter Hessler.
The latest issue is undoubtedly their best one yet, however. Why? Because it features an original and particularly drippy short story by that handsome devil known as “me.”
Check it out if you feel like purchasing the latest issue and supporting them ol’ literary arts’es.
