Jimmy Chen's "A photo essay by Philip Roth" at HTMLGIANT
Yesterday, Jimmy Chen posted "The ecstasy of a faint outdoor wind: A photo essay by Philip Roth" at HTMLGIANT. It's hilarious, the way Jimmy Chen is hilarious, which is very. Just the other day I saw an author photo and felt that warm flush of embarrassment under my skin, because, like most of the author photos I see, it was so overdone with melodramatic neck angles and hyper-serious eyes. Jimmy Chen's "photo essay by Philip Roth" hits the notes. This makes me even more excited for Jimmy's chapbook Typewriter from Magic Helicopter Press.
