I’m back in Boston again this weekend – this time for Boston University World Languages & Literature’s Fifth “Big Fat Books” Symposium – this year’s BFB is #紅樓夢 ! Waiyee will be delivering the keynote, on “The Language of Love in The Story of the Stone.”
And on Saturday, Cathy Yeh and I will be in conversation with a longtime hero of mine – the playwright David Henry Hwang, who together with composer Bright Sheng adapted “Dream of the Red Chamber” as a English-language opera.
