Other Works by Angie Chau
Angie was an artist in residence at Hedgebrook, an artist's retreat that accepts 40 writers per year. In August she was featured on their website:
"And finally, underground in the Cu Chi Tunnels, on my hands and knees to do research for the new novel. It is humid and shadowy and everyone is gasping so loudly for air an echo pulsates in the tight red clay chamber. All I can think is how in the world did these men and women have the conviction to live without seeing sunlight for months on end while being shelled, gassed, and bombed in the most devastated area in the history of warfare? I think about the act of writing and trying to unearth lives lived beneath the surface. I think about the sweat and perseverance, the grasping for direction in the dark, the faith required. While I am 15 feet underground, I realize it is about pushing on even when it feels impossible, a good metaphor for life and the writer’s path, one that usually means taking the road less traveled of course, and yet somehow well worth the long arduous bushwhack of a journey."Read More »
