At Large notes that while new Paris Review Editor Brigid Hughes points to a story by Yiyun Li as evidence of her editorial commitment to publishing unknown talents, stories by the same author appeared in last summer in The Gettysburg Review and in the most recent New Yorker fiction issue:
So technically, it goes TGR, TPR, TNY (if one uses publication dates as a benchmark).
Did the The New Yorker, The Gettysburg Review, and The Paris Review all decide to publish Li around the same time? Was The New Yorker just following TPR‘s lead? Or am I just giving myself credit for being familiar with the name Yiyun Li? You decide.
