Stay True

By Hua Hsu
Jason: New Yorker staff writer Hua Hsu wrote this elegiac memoir about a college friendship formed over books, music, art, and the early steps into adulthood. Hsu polishes off obsolete technologies like cassette mixtapes, pagers, and early Internet message boards, reminding us of all these communication tools that used to carry so much power. The book reminded me of everything I’ve lost in the last few decades: friends, feelings, and ways of being in the world. At the same time, Hsu reminds us how our greatest friendships (even the ones we’ve lost), helped us become the people we are today.
