Lan Samantha Chang, author of Hunger, and Inheritence, explores art, ambition, love, and friendship in her latest novel, All is Forgotten, Nothing is Lost

At a renowned writing school known as Bonneville, students are simultaneously terrified of and attracted to the charismatic, mysterious poet and professor Miranda Sturgis. As two students, Roman and Bernard, strive to win her admiration, the lines between mentorship, friendship, and love are blurred. Roman's star rises early, and his first book wins a prestigious prize. Meanwhile, Bernard labors for years over a single poem. Secrets of the past begin to surface, friendships are broken, and Miranda continues to cast a shadow over their lives. 
Lan Samantha Chang is the director of the prestigious University of Iowa Writer's Workshop.
