Surreal and seductive - brimming with moths, myths and mothers, nine-headed birds, ghost cousins and storm-chasers - Gods of Want is a startling first collection of short stories from a rising talent.
'Stunning and moving... One of our most brilliant authors' Bryan Washington
'These stories glitter and pulse' Dantiel W. Montiz
In 'Auntland', a stream of aunts adjust to American life by sneaking kisses from women at temple and buying tubs of vanilla ice cream to prep for citizenship tests. In 'The Chorus of Dead Cousins', ghost cousins cross space, seas and skies to haunt their living cousin. In 'Xifu', a mother-in-law tortures a wife in increasingly unsuccessful attempts to oust her. In 'Mariela', two girls explore each other's bodies for the first time in the belly of a plastic shark. And in 'Resident Aliens', a series of mysterious widows, each harbouring a calamitous secret, make their home in a former slaughterhouse.
K-Ming Chang's storytelling is fierce, fabulist and feminist. In these uncanny tales, she delves into myth and memory, corporeality and ghostliness, queerness and the quotidian, with boundless imagination. An electrifying and singular new voice in fiction, K-Ming Chang has been heralded by writers including RAVEN LEILANI, DANEZ SMITH, KIRSTY LOGAN, KELLY LINK, JULIA PHILIPS, TASH AW, ELAINE CASTELLO, JENNIFER TSENG and JUSTIN TORRES.
'Wild and lyrical, visionary and touching. Read her!' Sharlene Teo
These stories glitter and pulse -- DANTIEL W. MONIZ, author of Milk Blood Heat To read K-Ming Chang is to see the world in fresh, surreal technicolor... Both wild and lyrical, visionary and touching. Read her! -- SHARLENE TEO, author of Ponti Constantly illuminating and thoroughly astounding... a stunning and moving work by one of our most brilliant authors. -- BRYAN WASHINGTON, author of Lot and Memorial Ferociously talented -- JUSTIN TORRES, author of We the Animals No one writes like K-Ming Chang. Wise, energetic, funny, and wild, Gods of Want displays a boundless imagination anchored by the weight of ancestors and history. These stories sing, a true force to behold. -- KALI FAJARDO-ANSTINE, author of Sabrina and Corina In the genre of feminine madness, these stories are to be worshipped. They are fearless, hysterical, violent yet full of grace. Each sentence escalates toward devastating, poetic insight about our bodies, about cultural demands both treasured and feared, and about what makes being alive a terror and a joy. -- VENITA BLACKBURN, author of How to Wrestle a Girl
