One woman whirlwind of words, Amelia Gray, rained a firestorm of flavor all over Brooklyn this week. Here she is at WORD bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, (which is a bookstore that it is so good that it makes you want to punch other bookstores for not being as good) reading a piece about everyone’s favorite Chinese American mother/daughter novelist, Amy Tan.
As you’ll notice, I missed the first sentence because I couldn’t take my camera out of my pocket fast enough. Here is a re-enactment of that first sentence that took place over rye whiskey and oatmeal cookies at Sasha and Skyler’s.
This is a piece that Amelia read just for Skyler. No one was informed that this was being videoed. This was an intimate moment that was captured with no one’s permission.
