Little Black Blog and now published author. of Type A+.
The Skinny on her new memoir:
A straight-A Asian-American extrovert from Georgia with a penchant for vodka, designer shoes, and older men—receives her acceptance letter from Johns Hopkins Medical School, she is forced to make a decision between giving up her hard-partying, man-eating ways and continuing her fabulous VIP lifestyle and pursuing a more glitzy and glamorous career.
The book details her transition from MCAT-teaching pre-med free clinic volunteer to directionless, yet fabulous and resourceful, freelance writer. Like many Asian-Americans, she butts heads with her first-generation Chinese father when she strays from his life plan for her to attend a top medical program. She is encouraged by her histrionic but loyal friends—from an undiagnosed alcoholic roommate, to a bohemian BFFL, to a middle-aged playboy dermatologist boyfriend —to follow her champagne-soaked dreams of becoming a journalist.
Located on Georgetown’s upscale M Street, SimplySoles is the perfect venue for the launch of Type A+. Guests will enjoy sumptuous nibbles and effervescent bubbly in one of The District’s largest retail spaces, while a DJ will keep the atmosphere festive and celebratory.
