More than my promotion of sex work, critical readers of my book seem most upset that I refer to myself as a genius as a child. I did write that portion knowing it would upset people, even dear friends telling me it felt abrasive to read. I’ve always been cocksure, arrogant in a way that’s off-putting to many. I could turn it down, tone it down, but I’ve found the best way to deal with this polarizing aspect of myself is to treat it with a little levity, to roast myself in the process for being such a self aggrandizing asshole, because, in the end, my ego truly is ridiculous, but I’d rather crack jokes about being an asshole than pretend I’m not.
I hugely enjoyed WONY; doubly-so for the clarity and arrogance with which it was written. It was especially great to read in public and unsettle the locals
I really enjoyed your book. Ignore the haters. Would love to see another book from you - maybe fiction.
Don't worry, I think your are genial, great book, what a tremendous amount of life experience for such a young person. Please stay that way...
Genius! Also, some genius is compulsive, it can't help but express itself.
