Editorial Reviews


“Chang's high-intensity second collection tracks her needs, desires, and disappointments and her quest to fit them into a trans-Pacific history...”—Publishers Weekly


“Open this book and read the first poem ‘Unfinished Book of Mortals’ and see if you can put the book down. Tina Chang is writing to the future, from the past towards the present, and all the way back again. Of God & Strangers is haunted, intoxicating, and revelatory.-- the voice, ‘neither evil nor kind’ is ferociously alive.” (Marie Howe)
