My First Fan
On Friday night I went to a reading at Book Passage, my favorite Bay-Area bookstore. It was a promotional event for Best Women’s Travel Writing 2008. I was in the 2007 edition, and at this reading, someone actually recognized me from the year before, remembering correctly that I had read a story about China. This struck me as pretty remarkable. There are lots of writers whose work I enjoy but whom I probably could not pick out of a lineup.
