Victoria Chang

Obit BookjacketVictoria Chang, Chair of AULA’s MFA in Creative Writing, has had her fifth book of poems, Obit,  selected by Time magazine as one of 100 “Must-Read” books of 2020. The Time editors say that Chang captures the “visceral, heart-stopping ache” of grief in these poems, which were written in the wake of the death of her mother. “Although Chang initially balked at writing an obituary,” write the editors, “she soon found herself writing eulogies for the small losses that preceded and followed her mother’s death, each one an ode to her mother’s life and influence.” Obit is published by Copper Canyon Press.
