LAN SAMANTHA CHANG Hunger
When it comes to evoking the smash of cultures, national and familial, this superlatively gifted author has perfect pitch. The characters in Hunger are starved for any number of things: acceptance, love, success, and even dreams of home.Chang's stories are about love, memory and all the things that remain unspoken within families. The stories beautifully evoke the wrenching pain of leaving home--the pain of immigrant Chinese parents starting anew in America and the pain of their children, whose inevitable departures underline their parents' rootlessness and loss.
