Rounding up publications from the first half of 2022 with work in @TheSchooner, @washingtonpost, @altajournal, and a cameo in the @latimes

My story, “Uncle Juicy’s America Boy,” is in the current print issue of Prairie Schooner.

Back in March, I reviewed Elaine Hsieh Chou’s stellar, funny debut Disorientation for The Washington Post. For the San Francisco Chronicle from January through April, I reviewed Mike Chen’s page-turner Light Years From Home, interviewed Randy Rainbow about his memoir Playing With Myself, and reviewed three books about the political changes in Hong Kong.

For NPR, I reviewed David Yoon’s post-apocalyptic City of Orange and contributed to their mid-year Books We Love. For Alta Journal, I wrote about Steph Cha’s acclaimed novel Your House Will Pay.

Finally, I’m quoted in this Los Angeles Times story in April about the San Gabriel Valley Food Club, which is made up of writers and poets bonding around local food.
