I write because I find the world and its inhabitants exceedingly strange. Though the work I produce is primarily nonfiction, I believe that reading broadly is essential, and my research interests include formal experimentation, postmodern retellings, and queer and/or Asian American authors. As an essayist, I’m continually torn between the poles of subjectivity and fact (or perhaps an essayist is like Prometheus, trying to bring some sort of light [truth? Truth?] to the world, and as a result is chained to a rock of Fact and the eagle tormentor is named Subjectivity) and the tension between writing about the self and the complete inability to take myself seriously.
