All for Art: All Is Forgotten, Nothing is Lost and Emerging Writers
Lan Samantha Chang

Lan Samantha Chang’s new novel, All is Forgotten, Nothing is Lost, follows the trials of a class of emerging writers, their love/intimidation relationship with their brilliant poet professor, and the different ways they sacrifice their lives for writing. As Booklist praises, “it is [Chang’s] indelible portrait of the loneliness of artistic endeavor that will haunt readers the most in this exquisitely written novel about the poet’s lot.” In honor of the book’s portrait of emerging writers, young writers from New York City will read, and possibly read works that would horrify their workshop peers.

Lan Samantha Chang’s fiction has appeared inAtlantic Monthly, Story and The Best American Short Stories 1994 and 1996. Chang is the author of the award-winning books Hunger and Inheritance,and the novel All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost. She is the recipient of the Wallace Stegner and Truman Capote fellowships at Stanford University. She also received, from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, a Teaching-Writing fellowship and a Michener-Copernicus fellowship. Her many awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, and she was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. She lives in Iowa City, Iowa, where she directs the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop.
