Ruey-yah Tang is a writer and artist made in Brooklyn. Now she lives in Taiwan.

No one should write a book; everyone should write a book. The paradox of age is that we are free to revisit younger egos with grace and forgiveness. The novel is two parts - a middle-age memoir and a fictional coming-of-age set in NYC dedicated to the place I grew up and all its beauties between. the recession of '08 and the Covid -19 pandemic.

I look at the world as political but see it as sentimental.
