This Is Running For Your Life

‘Do I Know You?’ – Essayist Michelle Orange’s Sly Study of Comparison

Michelle Orange’s articles and fiction have appeared in the New York Times, The Nation and McSweeney’s. (She’s also a founding literary editor of The Rumpus.) Her latest collection, “This Is Running For Your Life,” artfully blends personal essay and her love of pop culture, especially film. We overhear an excerpt from “Do I Know You?” which analyzes an identity crisis, of sorts.
