This isn’t my memory, but if I could choose, I’d want to own Lam Phan’s “Bird Boys.”
It’s at once heartbreaking and exhilarating; every time I move through it again, I find another finely tuned sentiment that I hadn’t thought to be present before. As the boys move recklessly forward as birds, humanity is reconstructed and revealed.
Here, he writes about writing and other stuff. My favorite part is where he throws down all the stories he wishes he’d written.
