Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist: Sunil Yapa with Lee Bourdreaux - Live

This debut novel by Sunil Yapa tells the story of a day in the life of a young biracial man, the son of a police officer. The novel takes different perspectives to depict events taking place surrounded by the WTO protests on the streets of Seattle in 1990. "This is a protest novel which finds, at its core, a deep and abiding regard for the music of what happens," says Colum McCann. Sunil Yapa is the recipient of the 2010 Asian American Short Story Award, sponsored by Hyphen Magazine and the Asian American Writers’ Workshop in New York. His writing has appeared in American Short Fiction, The Margins, Hyphen Magazine, The Tottenville Review, and others. He will be joined by editor Lee Boudreaux and literary agent PJ Mark. Moderated by Amitava Kumar, author of Lunch with a Bigot: The Writer in the World.
