Micro-Questionnaire: Tao Lin

Published May 19, 2009 by Molly


BREAKING! Welcome to the inaugural edition of a series of Where the Wild Things Are micro-questionnaires, where various captivating individuals will examine their thoughts about the subject for your delight.

First up is Tao Lin, the author / businessman / scoundrel behind several books, a publishing house, and a blog. Here are his thoughts.

Did you encounter
Where the Wild Things Are as a child?

I remember feeling aware of its presence in maybe every Doctor’s office or Dentist waiting room. Feels like I have memories of it being even inside Doctor’s offices, next to containers of cotton swabs or something. I just had an image of it being framed on a wall in a Doctor’s personal office next to a framed diploma or physicians certificate.

I see.
When you see the word “children”, what do you think of?

Small, cute groups of white toy poodles “jogging” in a forward direction over a neat, very green field of grass in a park in Florida with a camera “panning” around them in the air, from fifty feet above, in the style of romantic comedy montages.

Thank you, Tao.

I am happy to have been solicited for this.
