Thank you for the great article and lovely cover picture of Sandra Tsing Loh ("The Multi-Cult Semi-Celeb," by John M. Glionna, photograph by Rachel Weill, April 9). I have been a fan of Loh's since I first heard her intelligent, offbeat humor on Peter Tilden's radio show when she guested several years ago. She did an impromptu commentary on "Friends" that was hilarious. Last year I enjoyed seeing her as a panelist at the L.A. Times Book Festival, where she held her own with such heavyweights as Steve Allen and Arianna Huffington.

After an off-Broadway run in New York in May, Sandra Tsing Loh has brought an L.A. version of "Bad Sex With Bud Kemp" to the Tiffany Theater in West Hollywood, where the show began a six-week run Monday night. Through her witty radio commentaries ("The Loh Life," heard on KCRW-FM 89.9) and books (the essay collection "Depth Takes a Holiday" and last year's novel, "If You Lived Here, You'd Be Home by Now"), Loh has become one of L.A.'

Selecting schools in L.A. is the seventh circle of hell. The process is so unnervingly difficult that even the most Zen of parents can be worked into frightened paranoiacs, usually around the time their kids are learning to put on their own underwear. Should they send their spawn to private school or public? Pay the exorbitant tuition that will sequester them amongst the children of the monied and educated or pay nothing and throw them to the wolves with the kids of the working class?

Forget the NCAA tournament. Sandra Tsing Loh has gone through true March Madness. In the last three weeks, Loh has weathered a family crisis, emergency rooms and sick children, the heartbreak of being fired from her gig as a commentator for KCRW-FM (89.9), the sweet revenge of being offered that job back -- and turning it down. She said hello to notoriety and goodbye to her status as a "painfully obscure $150-a-week semi-retired performance artist."

Although writer Sandra Tsing Loh was born in Newport Beach and raised in Malibu, she spent summers in Egypt, Brazil and other places she remembers as more stressful than exotic. Accounts of brushes with terrorists are typical of her tales of travels with her eccentric family. But it's the San Fernando Valley that captures Loh's imagination. For four years, the 35-year-old Van Nuys resident wrote a regular column about the Valley for trendy Buzz magazine.

Sandra Tsing Loh is a radical among her friends. Loh's friends happen to fit the definition of set-painting, freelance bohemian types. So, of course, that means she's married, likes to barbecue and enjoys her happy home in the much- maligned Valley--pool, Ikea furniture and all. It was not always thus. In Loh's not-too-distant youth, the writer-cum-performance artist was in the throes of her avant-garde phase, living in that other Valley, the one where Pasadena nestles.
