Authors Geoffrey Mak (Mean Boys: A Personal History) & Simon Wu (Dancing on My Own: Essays on Art, Collectivity, and Joy) discuss their debut essay collections, which range through art galleries and dance floors to rethink how we wield identity and status today. In conversation with Tony Tulathimutte, author of the forthcoming Rejection.

"[Mean Boys] is a rare comfort, a companion . . . Makes you say: yes, that is exactly how it is.” Torrey Peters

"[Dancing on My Own is] a beautifully ecstatic history of our present, and what it means to seek freedom in the things, institutions, and, most importantly, people around us." — Hua Hsu
