Next Live Show: Gish Jen

gish f2 Her fine first novel was Typical America. Her new book is non-fiction, The Girl at the Baggage Claim: Explaining The East-West Culture Gap. The west embraces the primacy of the self, she asserts. “And this above all, to thine own self be true.” OK, that’s Polonius, and he’s fictional, but still. The east looks to the family, to society. We’ll talk about this and listen to Alexander Wu on MOCA’s 85-key upright Harmony piano. And maybe someone will explain the 3 missing keys.
