Well *I* had fun.
My book ‘Be Everything At Once’ is out today! I hope these coming-of-age stories of a confused immigrant child blossoming into an equally confused korean-american adult will help others know they’re not alone! Leave a review, live, laugh, love: http://book.asperusualcomics.com
Today marks 3 years in New York, and tomorrow my first book will be released! This is a verryyy abridged version of events, but I feel like the last few years of my life have been such a roller coaster that I have to write it down to make sense of it. I’m grateful to everyone who reads my comics, especially Tumblr folks who have been around since forever. luv u all.
There’s a bunch of excerpts from my book in The New Yorker today! This is for anyone who’s ever cried during a shopping trip back to the motherland, anyone who’s felt out of place in what’s “supposed” to be home. I’m so excited for this book to come out in one week because stories like ours are so rarely told. Asian-Americans, gyopos, anyone with a hyphen in their identity, people whose backgrounds can’t be summed up in a neat sentence: get at me, I always want to hear from you!! <3
