  • It’s kind of funny. I’ve bought several listography journals in the past couple years. The listography game was a favorite of my family during lockdown and the many family zoom calls. And not once did I wonder about the person behind these ideas. I’ve read all your personal essays from the notes section. I’m also Asian American, I grew up in the 70s and 80s, and I see myself and the things I’ve never confronted, in your writing. Thank you for sharing your ideas and your clever books of lists. Thank you for sharing your thoughts of growing up. If you ever write a personal memoir, I’ll be the first in line to buy it.
