“A Day at the Office”: authors Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan & Peter Mountford

Posted by on Jun 14, 2011 in Authors, Books, Journalism, Newspapers, seattle, Writing | No Comments

Cheryl Tan and I worked together nearly fifteen years ago at the Baltimore Sun. She’s since worked as a fashion writer at the Wall Street Journal and recently published her first book, A Tiger in the Kitchen. During her recent visit to Seattle, I got together with Cheryl and local author Peter Mountford (author of A Young Man’s Guide to Late Capitalism – read my review here) – he and Cheryl met at the Yaddo artists’ retreat. Over oysters at The Walrus and the Carpenter in Ballard/Seattle, we discussed coffee, late-night writing, and finding focus through reading, music, and cooking. Also: beer.
