Hsu-Park-Lim: An Eternal Golden Braid — Cha exhibit — holiday ideas

(From last Saturday's Page Turner Asian Am Litfest...that's Ken Chen, moderator/AAWW director, on the far left.)

An interesting review by Jana Hsu (no relation to Hua I assume!) of the Theresa Hak Kyung Cha exhibit "Earth," up at the Berkeley Art Museum; the piece mentions the recent Cha book Exilee/Temps Morts, to which I contributed an essay.

Penguin Group authors were asked "what to give and what to get" this holiday season. I heart this hilarious Janice Lee suggestion:

Personal Days by Ed Park is The Office in book form: laugh-out-loud funny and perfect for so many people: your college-age nephew, your twenty-something friend in advertising, your thirty-something friend who's a full-time mom, your friend in his forties who just got laid off, and so on. In fact, I can't think of anyone it wouldn't be great for, except your friends without a sense of humor. Don't give it to them.

Hi Ed Park. This is Jana Hsu, who wrote the short review on Ms. Cha for The San Francisco Bay Guardian blog. Thanks for your comment, as it was very nice to discover it while surfing the web. At first I didn't realize that you were the author to one of the introductory essays in the book. I truly loved it when I read it, and made a note to make a copy of it from the book I borrowed, so I was pretty ecstatic to discover that you are the one and the same contributor.
