This short novel emerged virtually whole — unique in the writing life of its author, Lan Samantha Chang. Perhaps this is because the book is about the writing life. Two writers meet in an MFA program and remain in an odd, life-long relationship. Chang, the chairman of the famous writing workshops at Iowa, speaks about the fragility of the writer’s life, its sacrifices and its rewards.
