    Hi Grace! I am new to your work but after hearing your interview with Colin Marshall for LARB I am looking forward to reading Deli Ideology. I just wanted to thank you for the inspiring words. I am a millennial trying to “figure it out” who wants to do something creative and have fluidity in my life and career(s). But experience a lot of anxiety about it, too. I’m expecting that the characters in your novels will be something of a reassurance for me. Thanks!
