On this episode, we discuss our June 2022 pick is Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo, an award-winning coming-of-age story about Lily, a teenage Chinese-American girl exploring her sexuality in 1950’s San Francisco Chinatown. It’s a book that explores the intersectionality of identity for queer children of immigrants during a time when who and how you love were explicitly illegal and misunderstood, as well as what it was like to be a part of the Chinese diaspora in the middle of McCarthyism.
