'A work of gorgeous, enduring prose' - Washington Post
'Luminously elegiac stories... Complex and rueful... gives voice to internal struggles, catalogues of loss' - New York Times Book Review

The novella and five stories that make up this collection tell of displaced lives, and exiled imaginations. Far away from their ancestral home, a grandmother tells her granddaughters stories of their river ancestors. Having relocated to the American Midwest, a young couple purposefully drive all remnants of their lives in China into the shadows. In the title novella, a woman recounts her tragic marriage to an exiled musician, whose own disappointments nearly destroy their two daughters.

In exquisitely crisp, spare and subtle prose, Lan Samantha Chang untangles how an immigrant can hunger for love, for acceptance, and for what they have left behind. An undeniable classic of modern American literature, Hunger is a haunting collection of stories, suffused with quiet beauty and longing.

Part of the Pushkin Press Classics series: timeless storytelling by icons of literature, hand-picked from around the globe
