Who's a genius? You are!

...If your name is A.E. Stallings (poet), Peter Hessler (journalist) or Kay Ryan (former Poet Laureate), recipients all of the MacArthur Genius Grant as of this morning.

I'm excited about Pete Hessler--I've really enjoyed and gained a lot from his writing about China, and he should be able to put the grant to good use.

I haven't read any of his books but they come highly recommended from you and others. I did read his wife's book about China, FACTORY GIRLS, which was terrific.
