This week’s story is an excerpt from Pow!, the forthcoming books from this year’s Nobel Prize winner, Mo Yan. I have not read anything by Mo Yan, but over the past month I’ve read a lot about him and am anxious to see what this excerpt holds. I’ll post my thoughts here when I’m finished reading “Bull,” but in the meantime feel free to leave your comments below.
