I had so much fun reading Bald New World this past weekend. It was a great crowd and I also got to see one of my old buddies who was out visiting from Hong Kong. I read from three sections including the opening, where everyone loses their hair, a scene from future Beijing, as well as one of the most personally wracking parts of the book. While I love reviews, there’s nothing quite like seeing people react directly to your work in person. I got really into the performance so afterwards, I felt very drained, almost unable to talk. Fortunately, a few sangrias fixed that and I was up and about shortly afterwards. Big big thanks to Saehee and Ani for hosting me. And of course, to Angela for running around to take these photos, ha ha.
