Museum of Things
"The vivid descriptions of the objects bring the museum of Chang’s life to fullness. In those descriptions the poems become honest. These objects allow the reader to walk through her memories displayed in a way that nurtures."
--Anna Huber, Philadelphia Stories, Fall 2022
"Liz Chang’s chapbook Animal Nocturne... explores the complexities of race, love, and motherhood through a style of poetry unique to the contemporary moment."
--Mandy Bach, Philadelphia Stories, Fall 2021
What Ordinary Objects
"...Chang holds several conversations at once. ...There is the dialogue between ordinary objects and the invented, and between sensuous colors and cautious colors. ...Chang’s luminous poems last inside the reader’s memory long after reading."
--Amy Small-McKinney, 2011 MCPL
