MEDIA REVIEWS

Absolutely stunning ... Full of longing, mystery, fear and hope. I loved this book to pieces! - Frances Cha, author of If I Had Your Face

Chung’s writing is masterful, and Sea Change is glorious - Bryan Washington, author of Memorial and Lot

There are no limits to what Chung can do. Her prose is so immersively beautiful that at times I felt swept away in a wave, admiring from underwater, her scintillating refractions of light. - Weike Wang, author of Chemistry

Sea Change tugged at my heart and refused to let go. With tenderness and perceptiveness, Chung deftly navigates family, loss, friendship and the intricacies of love, especially for ourselves - Elaine Hsieh Chou, author of Disorientation

A wild blessing of a debut. Gina Chung’s curiosity, precision and grace have created a world both strange and recognizable, the kind of place you can find a version of yourself you did not know existed, and call her home. - Mira Jacob, author of Good Talk

With her debut, Chung has proven she is a true original, the rare kind of writer who can be simultaneously witty and deeply sensitive, confident and devastatingly vulnerable. - Jean Kyoung Frazier, author of Pizza Girl

I loved how easy it was to immerse yourself into this story.
