Nam Le -- Writer to watch

Nam Le, author of The Boat, a wonderful collection of stories, has won the Dylan Thomas Prize, which honors writers under the age of 30. Le was born in Vietnam, raised in Australia, and lives in New York. The Boat, his debut publication, is a wonderful collection of stories. Peter Florence, chairman of the judges for the prize, says that Le is, "in this panel's opinion, a phenomenal literary talent." I definitely concur with this opinion!
