Franny Choi interviewed in The Iowa Review

“What’s important for me to remember is that language is a technology. As someone growing up in an immigrant family, English was a technology I learned to use to navigate the world safely. . . . I wanted this book to approach language as a technology, along with all its imperfections and limitations, the ways it breaks or glitches or jams. Which I think is a shift—from feeling frustrated with English, to making some attempts to delight in it. It doesn’t always work. I’m worried I veered away from your question.”
