Publisher's Summary

Fresh out of college, Mary H.K. Choi booked a one-way ticket to New York City and never looked back. Twelve years and countless jobs and dates and a bajillion dollars in rent later, she'd finally had enough. In Oh, Never Mind, Choi chronicles her decision to let go of New York by looking back at the hilarious and often brutal life lessons the city taught her - about love, money, friendship, and, above all, herself. From buying a criminally expensive Rick Owens coat to quitting bulimia to accidentally dating a guy who worked at the airport, these profoundly funny essays capture a young woman's struggles coming of age in a city that not only doesn't sleep; it keeps you up at night.

Mary H.K. Choi is a contributor to The New York Times, GQ, Wired, Allure, and Billboard. She is the head writer of Take Part Live, a daily news show. She is a former editor of MTV Style and executive producer of the documentary House of Style: Music, Models and MTV. She's written comic books for Marvel and Vertigo and is a founder of Missbehave magazine.

Maybe It's Just Me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Unfortunately, I couldn't get past the profanity. Probably won't bother other people. Wish I could have heard the story...

Has Oh, Never Mind turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

What didn’t you like about Mary H. K. Choi’s performance?

Profanity...

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Oh, Never Mind?

I didn't get far enough to assess...

Any additional comments?

Good luck to Mary H.K. Choi!

Inside the author's world and head

Excellent piece. I felt every word...teared up at the traumatic moments, breathed sighs of relief at her epiphany and self-awareness, laughed my hiney off at her ability to see humor even in life's craziest moments. A must read for all women!
