This, as all other news here, is for my friends back home, who might want to know that:
I was awarded the 2007-8 Walton Fellowship in fiction at the University of Arkansas. This is, really, a big deal, mostly because there are so many other good, good writers here who could have won the award.
Well, thank you Ellen and Molly and Skip. The money ammounts to roughly one million canadian dollars, which I will be given all at once, in cash, hundred dollar bills, non sequential order...
Do I really have to quote Dave Chappelle now...?
