Anthony Veasna So

Graduate Student




Anthony Veasna So is a queer man, a Cambodian-American son of former refugees, and a graduate of Stanford University. A native of Stockton, CA, he was raised on stories of the Khmer Rouge Genocide that often, somehow, ended on a self-deprecating joke. His prose and comics have appeared in Barrelhouse, decomP, Hobart, Nashville Review, Ninth Letter, and elsewhere. He's been known to dabble in standup comedy, in which he makes too many jokes about eating too many Jack in the Box tacos, and he currently serves as a prose editor for The Adroit Journal. You can follow him @fakemaddoxjolie and at his website.
