Writer Denied U.S. Residency
As I noted several weeks ago, Yiyun Li asked for U.S. residency on the ground of “extraordinary ability in the arts.” She wrote A Thousand Years of Good Prayers and she has won the Pushcart Prize, the Plimpton Prize for New Writers, and the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. She was denied—even with support from Salman Rushdie and editor David Remnick. The Washington Post quoted her as saying that she would file an appeal.

In Slate, Jay Dixit provides an overview of the coverage of the outrage of Muslims about cartoons published in a Danish newspaper that depicted Muhammad.
