All is Forgotten, Nothing is Lost, by Lan Samantha Chang
Rarely do I finish a novel and start to read it all over again, but that's what happened with All is Forgotten, Nothing is Lost by Lan Samantha Chang. It wasn't just that I was sorry the book was over, but that I was so engaged with the story, the characters, the narrative arc, that I wanted to experience it all over again.
And it is about writers. A real book about writers, instead of all the phony books and movies about writers. The author is Samantha Chang, who is the author of two previous books: Hunger and Inheritance, and the director of the Iowa Writers Workshop. I took a workshop at Stanford from her on the novel, and she was an excellent teacher.
