We Oriental like rugs and 5 spice
You mentioned the word "Americans" a few times during your reading & talk at McNally Jackson Books two days ago. But something in the way you said it made me suspect you weren't including yourself in that group. You gave me the perfect opportunity to ask my question when you said you might have found college more rewarding if you'd approached it with a mindset of "This CAN BE for me!" but I didn't raise my hand. So here is my question: If you had replaced the word "Americans" with a personal pronoun, would it have been "we"? Or "they"?
Your the shit. Come out to Olympia WA and kick it with me haha.

Unlike other personalities today, you've been able to connect with a group of 20 somethings that haven't really been properly defined today. It seems as if your work speaks for itself, you no longer even have to proclaim your work goes far beyond just food as onlookers realize it for themselves. Life for me has been through a 'white observational' lens in a medium sized city, but you are relatable on a level that transcends race relations and even opinion. Though I've always been interested in the racial components of works such as yours, i've never been able to say I have the full experience. For me it's not white guilt, it is what it is. Anyway, you've inspired me in a way that no one else has so far. What sparked me was when you said at the big omaha conference not to be afraid to offend anyone. Don't be afraid to be able to say your out for money, and it hit me. I guess it was that last push I needed to finally throw my hat in the ring. Thank you.
All I can say is, I am incredibly jealous of your wife. For real. If you ever get divorced, hit up this tw-am shorty.
