Laugh With Me as We Try to ‘Be Everything At Once’

About Dami Lee

Born in Seoul, Korea, and thrice an immigrant to the United States, Dami combines her two cultures in her style, humor, and substance. The book is in English and gives a glimpse into her experience acclimating and re-acclimating to this country. And she consumes a lot of snacks.

About the Book

Dami starts each section with an introduction of prose. And she is hilarious. She may be a cartoonist, but I’d happily read any prose she decided to write as well (hint, hint). Following the introductory pages are the comics. Most pages include a four-panel comic with a title and serve as stand-alone concepts. But, put together in sequence, they tell her story of coming to the United States with her family as a little girl, and then figuring out life here. Then moving back to Korea. Then moving back to the United States. Then, moving back to Korea after college, and finally back to the U.S. in her mid-20s, where she is settled. For now?

Why You Should Buy This Book

If it isn’t already obvious why you should buy and read Be Everything At Once, here are a few more reasons. In case I didn’t already mention it, the book is so, so funny. Plus, you learn a bit about what it’s like to acclimate to United States-ian culture, especially as a child. And, most importantly, you learn to stop taking yourself too seriously. Reading this book gives you a great kick in the pants to just take it easy on yourself. Just be you. Embrace it. Embrace you.
