Praise for National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 prize honoree K-Ming Chang

"This is a novel full of animal yearning, a novel that places women at the center, nosing into their silences, licking at their damaged places . . . This novel feels like Chang's stab at finding that language, digging it out of her body like a buried dog tooth, accompanied by a fine spray of blood."--The New York Times

"[K-Ming Chang has the] ability to take a common, decidedly earthbound, experience and transform it through her lens into a fantastical, otherworldly encounter."--San Francisco Chronicle

"[Chang's] most ambitious and enchanting book yet . . . dreamy . . . Chang is a gifted, poetic storyteller whose imaginative work is a true experience to give yourself over to."--Shondaland

"Chang weaves a tapestry of bodies and dreams, fantastical desires, and viscerally material fears."--Shelf Awareness, starred review

"In a culture where television, movies, and even social media have become the primary source for engaging with content, K-Ming Chang's novel Organ Meats is a deafening howl of what only a book can achieve. Each page is dense with a macabre atmosphere and clever turns of phrases that linger like ghosts who have overstayed their welcome."--Soapberry Review

"Wow, wow, wow. If you loved the weirdness of Chang's Bestiary and Gods of Want, you will love this one because it's even weirder. Chang is a master of beautiful gore, questionable relationships and surreal realism."--Ms. Magazine, October 2023 Book Roundup

"Perfect combination of really descriptive, gory, intense scenes, but also with really beautiful writing."--WBEZ/Nerdette, A Bounty of Fall Books

"[An] intimate and visceral new novel."--Nylon, October 2023 Must-Read Books Roundup

"Girlhood has a feral quality . . . Chang conjures magic in her fiction, stretching the bounds of reality and blurring the lines between human girls and wild dogs."--San Francisco Chronicle, 25 Highly Anticipated Books to Put on Your Radar this Fall

"A haunting and feverish exploration of a very complex (and somewhat disturbing) friendship, I read this book wide eyed with such wonder. Certainly one of the most inventive and visceral novelists I've encountered in quite some time . . . I am now a devoted fan."--Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke

"One of our most enchanting storytellers today . . . From every first sentence, she has you hooked."--Literary Hub

"Chang is singular amongst us all. . . . [She] not only accomplishes narrative reinvention in her writing--she builds upon what feels achievable on the page. Chang shows us different ways of being."--Bryan Washington for Electric Literature
