Read “Karen Han’s Bong Joon Ho: Dissident Cinema” in The Brooklyn Rail

For The Brooklyn Rail, I reviewed Karen Han’s new book, “Bong Joon Ho: Dissident Cinema.” The book is a fascinating glimpse into the background of the Oscar-winning “Parasite” director’s filmography and process.

In the same issue, you can also find an amusing list of films—you may have heard of the new Sight and Sound list of the greatest films in history, but have you heard of The Brooklyn Rail’s “Greatest Films You’ll Never See”?

It was fun to participate in this list of classic (but nearly impossible to watch) films!

“Falling” nominated for Pushcart Prize

I’m thrilled and honored to announce that my short story, “Falling,” has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. A fabulist retelling of Frank Lloyd Wright’s construction of the Fallingwater house, “Falling” takes real-life architectural history and bends it into horror.

You can find the story in Flying Ketchup Press’ new speculative fiction anthology, Tales from the Deep. The book features art by Alex Eikhoff (including the painting of Fallingwater in this post). Learn more about the story and the book in my newsletter post from October 2022.

The inventive Flying Ketchup Press has also crafted more ways to celebrate the book. You can now also order posters based on the story, book, and other great stories and wonderful authors in the anthology here.

“Falling” was a story long in the making (and writing)—it is such a pleasant surprise for it to be recognized with a nomination.

Read “From Turin to Toronto” in The Usonian

This week in The Usonian, I wrote about my recent presentations in Turin and Toronto—on Doxiadis Associates’ historic city planning activities in Nigeria, and the ghost city of Varosha in Cyprus, respectively.

It was such a privilege to discuss my work in these incredible places. I am grateful for the support of AISU and the MGSA in supporting my travel.
