The fine print: Before founding Girl Friday, Lam worked as the executive editor of Seal Press. She has written several books, including Women Who Eat, Ethan Stowell’s New Italian Kitchen, and Uncle Dave’s Cow, and collaborated on many others, among them In the Kitchen with the Pike Place Fish Guys, Mindful Parenting, Gender Intelligence, and Flex. She has her master’s in English literature and is now getting an MBA, she but dropped out of her PhD program because they never got to read books, only meta-meta-criticism, which leached her joy.
