I’ve spent a lot of time reading other people’s stories. I devour memoirs in a single day, and the feelings remain with me for weeks.
Some of the memoirs that I think about still:
The Latehomecomer – Kao Kalia Yang
When Breath Becomes Air – Paul Kalanithi
First They Killed My Father – Loung Ung
Finding common threads in another person’s narrative feeds the part of me that wants to be part of the world.
I want to tell you my story. I want to listen to yours.
