In Pin Ups—an approachable, honest extended essay—Yi Shun Lai reflects on her long, ragged love affair with outdoor sports. Look deeper, and it's an exploration of gender, race, class and belonging.

  • Features

    • Lai is the fiction editor and co-publisher of the Tahoma Literary Review; she teaches in the MFA program for Creative Writing at Southern New Hampshire University

    Made in USA.

    From the publisher: When Yi Shun Lai was old enough, her mother bought her a subscription to 'Teen magazine, in the hopes that she'd shed her tomboy skin to reveal a polished young lady. But Lai cut out all the "wrong" articles—girls on BMX bikes, girls on the gridiron, girls on the ski slopes and in the ocean—and these women became her role models. Pin Ups is the story of Lai's quest to join these women in their ranks.
