Apropos, as a matter of fact, since one, The Windup Girl, just won the Nebula (2009) and Compton Crook award (2010), was nominated for the Hugo (2010).
We would like to publish a detailed review of this book through a critical race/gender theory lens. So tell your friends at Broad Universe and Wiscon, and contact me if you want more information.
Those of you in/from Thailand (or Malaysia or China) might care about this project, too, and might have something to say about this book. I'd be especially interested in hearing, and publishing, your voices on this.
