The good folks at ReImagining Magazine have published their summer issue. My essay, An American Imposter, finds itself there.
I spent a long time abroad this spring and summer, and got tired of having to “explain” my American identity. It got to the point that I no longer wanted to talk to strangers about where I was from. It became impossible to have conversations about anything besides our loathsome national politics.
The experience inspired this essay. Hope you’ll read and share.
