Where Hua Hsu Writes
Yes, that is a wine fridge under my desk.
Below that are a couple pieces by this artist named Charlie Mai. (They were recently joined by some Stephanie Shih pieces.) I’m working on a book called “Impostor Syndrome,” so I think the “FAKES” thing refers to books that touch on personal authenticity and performance. I’m not calling those books or their authors fakes! I don’t do that anymore. We’re all about positive vibes now.
