Hi. My name is Charlotte Hsu. I’m a writer in Buffalo, N.Y. I came here in 2009 by way of Las Vegas, Los Angeles and many other places.
Things that I like include maps, whiskey, languages, the desert, snow and space. My favorite authors are Margaret Atwood, Ted Chiang, Milan Kundera, Italo Calvino, Thomas Pynchon and Isabel Wilkerson. My favorite books are “Exhalation,” “V,” “Against the Day” and “Gravity’s Rainbow.”
Though I make a living using words, I believe math is the language that best describes the world around us. My dad is a physicist who makes radiation detectors, and perhaps because of his influence, I have loved science ever since I was small.
This blog is a repository for my thoughts, and a home for my online portfolio.
