A beautiful, generous book of personal essays. As a writer, Chee is interested in the constructed self, how identity can be a mask that conceals and also reveals. His self-reflection on how his own identities have served, protected, and hindered him is also an persistent, gentle invitation to the reader to remember that "the ways you are human are not always visible to yourself." There's lots of germane advice for writers here, re: this book's title, but this book is for anyone with a brain and a heart.
