"I could vanish follow the wet summery air down an unfamiliar highway, and try to escape the little legs dancing on my kitchen counter or lungs the size of kidney beans wheezing from the nightstand. I imagine cracked earth; giant saguaro; the hot air ...more

Lucky enough to read an early copy, and I know already this is my favorite 2021 book (and easily a favorite memoir of my life). Incredible. Formally innovative, brilliant, present, so candid and felt. I know this book took the author a decade (maybe ...more

In Bestiary, K-Ming Chang upturns earth and language in equal measure. Every page is percussive, hypnotizing, and maddeningly smart. I am stunned by the imaginative reach of this debut, the remarkable prose. Chang isn’t just a new voice in the landsc ...more

Shattering, brutal, yet hopeful. This one hurt a lot. The writing, though, is so good you won't be able to put this down, with razor sharp lines and short, punch-in-the-gut chapters. It's propulsive, inspiring, haunting - phew. I wish books like thes ...more

“When I think of my father, I think of my heart breaking in stages. A dull pain, then piercing. Electric. Still, somehow, gradual.”
T Kira Madden, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls

“Sometimes it feels like we are only this: moments of knowing and unknowing one another. A sound that is foreign until it's familiar. A drill that's a scream until it's a drill. Sometimes it's nothing more than piecing together the ways in which our hearts have all broken over the same moments, but in different places. But that's romantic. Sometimes it's realer than that.”
T Kira Madden, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls

“There are so many ways to lose a person. There are so many revisions.”
T Kira Madden, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls
