On top of the bookshelf is a tall bowl by Andrew Kazakes (Wu's ex-boyfriend) next to a wood-handled bowl picked up on a road trip driving around Sri Lanka. “It was the only souvenir I got. I went with Andrew and my best friend, Anat, and our lives were just beginning to fall apart, though we didn’t know it yet. We got in a car accident when the brakes on the rental car stopped working on a windy mountain road, and the guy whose car we rear-ended ended up taking us out for tea and sweets, and smoking our American cigarettes. The framed piece is a 1927 edition Max Ernst frottage. I got it for Andrew last year, and he didn’t pick it up at the framer after he left.”
