Quick Book Review: “How to Write an Autobiographical Novel” by Alexander Chee
A series of essays by the Korean-American author. Some of the essays resonated more with me, especially the ones about his gay activism. Others, about tarot cards and astrology, drag culture, and being a writer, didn’t hold much interest for me, although his writing style is great and I enjoyed reading the book, even those essays that didn’t really hit the mark for me. His novel, Edinburgh, has been sitting on my shelf for a few years. I’ll probably crack that one open later this year, to see what his fiction is like.
