Back to Business

The very gracious librarian at the Saxton B. Little Free Library in Columbia, Connecticut, wrote to me about my novel, Picking Bones from Ash, and asked for a blog for the library blog. I was a little slow in responding--baby interruption--but was only too pleased to write something new for her and for the library patrons. You can see some thoughts about writing and grief over here.

I have an essay called "Compartment Comportment" coming out in the inaugural issue of the Asian American Literary Review this April. The essay is--as the title suggests--about how we comport ourselves when living in compartments (I had fun with that title). You can read the intro of the essay over at the Discover Nikkei; the essay appears in installments and the first part runs today.

I'm pretty damned excited to appear on February 15th at 7:30 at the very awesome Greenlight Books in Brooklyn. Blogger and feminist Amanda ReCupido will talk to me about . . . feminism. You might remember an interview I did with her a while back--and a follow up little post I wrote on the subject. This will be my first time back out and about as a writer since having a baby and I'm looking forward to it. Hope to see you there.

Congrats on Compartment Comportment--such a great essay!
