What. Woke up to this news! Libraries mean the world to me, & I’m so very thrilled THE INCENDIARIES is on this year’s @americanlibraryassociation longlist for the Carnegie Medal in fiction! & alongside books I love!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(I always used to check out fifteen books at a time—the maximum allowed—from my childhood library. It was often more than I could carry in my arms, & the wonderful magician librarians would help me get ALL THE BOOKS into a bag. ❤️ So grateful to libraries, & to librarians.)

A friend sent me this picture of THE INCENDIARIES on display in a @strandbookstore-@clubmonaco offshoot, & I love it so much, not least because of its proximity to a Salvador Dalí cookbook. Which brings me one step closer to my realest life goal: having a pet ocelot, à la Dalí
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
jkjk I know ocelots are not pets, wild animals absolutely are not pets, they should be left out there to live in peace, I will never have one

It’s fall tomorrow! 🍂 & my publisher @riverheadbooks is holding a giveaway of these books, over on their page, jackets & all. 🤗❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(P.S. Fall is my favorite season, & when I was a kid, I loved school so much that I used to WEEP when summer rolled around, fall was a time of rejoicing, what can I say, I was pure nerd.) (Am?)

From the last book-tour swing: I read at the Library of Congress, thanks to the @smithsonianapa, @kundimanforever, & @lawrenceminhbuidavis! I finally met Korean soul-sister @nicolesoojung, & we talked about THE INCENDIARIES at @politicsprose Union Market! Signed books at the wonderful @eastcitybookshop! Spoke at the @bkbookfest with a suite of lovely humans! Had dinner with friends new & old, including a lot of 🌟 debut writers! I read at @thewritersblocklv, all thanks to @believermag, @blackmtninst, @keradtke, @chikitlinski, & Derek Palacio! There was very good karaoke afterward! I spotted THE INCENDIARIES at the airport, a thrill that does not seem to get old!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Home for a bit before the next flight, in October, back to New York. & tonight, reading at @thebinderysf, 7:30, with @anissegross, @rrrrrrrachelkhong, @lydiakiesling, @caillemillner, & @cwinnette. 💛🎉

Last night, I went to a bar where the incredible @shinobipaws had concocted an entire cocktail menu inspired by lines from THE INCENDIARIES. & there was a giveaway scavenger hunt, with a copy of the book hidden in the bar shelves. & I had the best gimlet of my life, can never have a gimlet again.

Thank you, Chantal Tseng & @lupita.reads. The Reading Room is such a special place. 💘🍸

Easily the best part of being on tour is seeing and meeting so many excellent people—including, in one case, a surprise bookstore visit from a second cousin I haven't seen since we were babies. ❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The past couple of weeks, I took part in a group reading at @bookpassage, a panel at @therubysf, a book-signing at @volumesbooks, & readings at @wcfbook & @citylightsbooks. Didn't get pictures at the lovely @StoryStudio, @books_inc, @unabridgedbookstore, & Writers With Drinks. (📷 for the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th & 7th pictures: @garysinghsj, Yang Huang, @zillianzi, @mononoke97, & Jamie Thomas!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now in DC—reading at the Library of Congress tonight, & @politicsprose (Union Market) tomorrow! 👋🏻

The publisher sent book-themed matches & look I’m not saying I used it as an excuse to straight-up light a shrine to this exquisite novel but I’m not saying I didn’t, either 🔥

THE INCENDIARIES was published in the UK yesterday! I was flying from Chicago to San Francisco for most of the day, & couldn't celebrate properly. Today, marked the publication with the most British thing I could think of: delicious scones. With tea & clotted cream, of course. Scones & tea & cream, HELL YES. 🇬🇧☕️

I’ve been keeping this TOWERING STACK of fellow Asian women’s summer debut books by my desk because—I mean, look at them. ❤️😭 What a summer, what a change from even five, ten years ago. I wish I’d had this while I was growing up, & I’m so glad it’s here now. (Threw in some forthcoming books too, why not!) 🎉

Get you a bookseller friend who, after hosting your novel reading at his ✨ store, gives you a congratulations card that somehow turns into a fiendishly adorable robot. ❤️

Having pastries with 💫 @i__rojascontreras, whose wondrous novel FRUIT OF THE DRUNKEN TREE & my book published the same day—they’re sisters! 💕 If you haven’t read hers yet, do! We’re celebrating being alive* & on the other side of publication.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*The day my book was published, I admitted to some debut-writer friends that I’d woken up thinking, “My novel’s out & hey, I haven’t died.” They’d woken up on their publication days thinking the...same...thing. 😮
