Cohort 2 Update

MFA Author's Book is a Hit
Daniel Asa Rose, one of WestConn's writers in residence for the MFA in Professional Writing program, has recently authored a book which recently received a big contract from a major house and has been getting glowing reviews.
The book is titled "LARRY'S KIDNEY: Being the True Story of How I Found Myself in China With My Black-Sheep Cousin and His Mail-Order Bride, Skirting the Law to Get Him a Transplant ... and Save His Life" (Morrow, May 12, 2009)
“A satisfying, hysterical page-turner that will captivate fans of travel writing and family narratives, with special interest for anyone who's helped a love one through serious illness.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A side-splitting tour de force that … will resonate with readers concerned about the plight of American patients who may be relegated for years to an organ transplant waiting list.” (Library Journal)
