Hunger 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

As an avid reader of Asian, Anglo-Asian, and Asian-American literature, I highly recommend this lovely collection. The characters here don't verbalize their angst, they endure it with grace and acceptance. Chang pays quiet tribute to those who gave much to see a better life for their children--even if they realized that the changes they wrought would also leave a sense of loss and of diminished identity. Her writing is exquisite--she wafts into your heart instead of intellectualizing or exclaiming. I'm looking forward to reading *Inheritance* next.

This book is absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a book that you will pick up over and over again, this is it. Chang's characters are very vivid and we are able to share their feelings on the most intimate level. The novella is a superior piece that flows well and allows us to see the various struggles people face in life. The stories continue the theme of hunger nicely and create equally enchanting scenarios. Every piece is fresh and very different from the one preceding it. This book truly deserves all of the praise it has received.

Chang weaves the painful experiences of immigrant life and the intricate happenings of being American. Her prose is comparable to the almost similar genre written by authors like Ha Jin and Amy Tan. Her short story entitled 'Pipa's Story' is reminiscent as a shorter version of Tan's 'The Bonesetter's Daughter.' Would definitely recommend to anyone that is interested in Asian immigrant prose.

The title piece deserves to be a classic in the novella form. It is a fiercely moving and uncompromisingly written long story by a younger writer who I look forward to reading in the years to come.
