NOT A SELF-HELP BOOK: THE MISADVENTURES OF MARTY WU

published by Shade Mountain Press

From the back cover: “Marty Wu, compulsive reader of advice manuals, is easily flustered. With a job she longs to quit and a formidable mother who’s impossible to please, she ricochets between the stress of New York and the warmth of extended family in Taiwan. Strewn with bi-cultural wisecracks, Marty’s diary reveals her anxieties and frustrations, her pipe dream to open a boutique costume shop, and her discovery of family secrets old and new.”

YOUR COUNTRY IS BEAUTIFUL

Your Country is Beautiful is a book of 10 flash essays and hand-drawn maps. Each provides a front-row seat to disaster relief through my work for ShelterBox, an international disaster relief agency. You can order it by e-mailing me directly: yishun(at)thegooddirt(dot)org. Each copy is $15. Half the purchase price goes back to ShelterBox USA. So far we’ve raised nearly $500.
