A happy side effect of the National Book Award nomination for Gene Yang’s American Born Chinese (First Second Books) has been the interviews with Yang. He’s unfailingly gracious, intelligent, interesting, and insightful:
- Comic Foundry, interviewed by Tim Leong
- Sequential Tart, interviewed by Shaenon Garrity
- SFGate.com, interviewed by Edward Guthmann
“My students are used to reading documents made up of words and images, sound files and movies. They aren’t disturbed when these elements bleed into each other – when words use visual devices to enhance what they’re communicating, when images are made up of textual elements.”
Here are all of Yang’s contributions to the First Second blog.
