My Life in Financial Journalism

This is my Business Formal look, from my Forbes.com days. Here’s an essay I wrote late last year and sent it out on the Asian American Journalists Association’s listserv in an attempt to sort of jump-start informal chatter and more open discussion. It didn’t work, but I think it’s a hell of an essay, so here you go! — This year is my 15th in the hurly-burly world of financial journalism. I’m amazed at what I’ve been through (being promoted, being...

Philly and Asian American Writers’ Workshop Readings

Well, when I rolled into Philadelphia, for the reading at UPenn I was sick. Just as well, because the entire Northeast was covered in a sleet storm. We were literally falling over each other on the ice as we fumbled our way to the Kelly Writers House. Even though we were about half an hour late, a roomful of people were patiently waiting. While I was reading I broke into a sweat and my glasses kept slipping off my nose, but, hell, nothing would stop me from reading for and poisoning the minds...

Time for Tourin’

Corky Lee’s original photograph used for the cover of “This Is a Bust.” The Pagoda movie theater was torn down in the 80s. Well, I’m about to embark on the first leg of the tour for “This Is a Bust.” Thursday, Sunday and then Tuesday. I’m feeling good, though I haven’t yet decided what parts I’m going to read. Definitely Chapter 1, which is the setup for 1976 and all. Back when I did readings for Waylaid, I would just jump in and start...

Ed Lin Vs Mark Ruffalo

So on Friday I went to go check out what turned out to be a not-very-interesting play. Yet there was some intriguing drama — co-starring me and very capable actor Mark Ruffalo. Let me just say from the outset that I’m a fan of Ruffalo’s work. He was great in You Can Count on Me and more recently, Zodiac. In any case, while the audience was still arriving before the show, I had my nose in my program. Because I was close to the aisle, I had to stand up a few times to let...
