First, a review of Apple Pie in the Daily Bruin (the UCLA newspaper) that came out last November. I have no idea how I missed it these last ten months, but it's a pretty good one.
Overall, the novel reads like an Asian version of "The Wonder Years." Mostly, it is full of some of the best prose about the current state of college life in America. More than that, the novel narrates the struggle to become an American, despite ethnicity, race and social class.Empahsis mine (tee-hee).
Second, is my somewhat longish essay about my recent Florida vacation: The Gold-Plated Swamp. Sadly, my tan has faded.
It's a long weekend so I should have more soon.
