The Hairpin and Japan, maybe

Sharing exciting publication news: I had a piece — Treading the Water Trade — published the other day at one of my favourite websites, The Hairpin.

Encouraged by recommendations from a few people, I am trying to start work on a book about my time in the hostess clubs of Tokyo and, more so, about what came after. I kinda feel like I need to go back to Japan, which I have been saying I would do for the past three years. Sadly this requires money, which I don’t have enough of, and time, which, given my inability to acquire enough well-paying writing gigs recently, I may have to reluctantly sacrifice in order to submit to the life of an office drone. Disappointing.

Let’s see if I can figure out a way around this.
