Sandra Tsing Loh is an icon in the cultural sphere of LA, and practically the patron saint of Van Nuys, where she lives — and that’s not some backhanded compliment. An award-winning writer/performer/composer/gadfly and, yes, also a beloved NPR personality, she’s a wife, a mom and yet still somehow a really good time. And that’s before lunch! Famous for having lost her job on LA’s legendary WKCRW when her engineer failed to bleep the word “fuck” from one of her beloved dispatches, she was eventually offered her job back…but told them to, well, fuck off. Meanwhile, her books, articles, performances, music, and commentaries can be found in bookstores, theaters, magazines and on the radio just about any day of the week. But lucky you: you can get this one here…now!
