Finding Iris Chang
Friendship, Ambition, and the Loss of an Extraordinary Mind
"As with most suicides, the shocking death of writer Iris Chang (THE RAPE OF NANKING) in 2004 left her survivors with many questions. Paula Kamen, a longtime friend and fellow author, attempts to provide some answers, using her personal recollections; interviews with family, friends, and colleagues; and Iris's own diaries and writings. Although the book ultimately provides no definitive answers, a more complete portrait of this complex young woman does emerge. Narrator Bernadette Dunne demonstrates her mastery of the audio format. Without resorting to accent or artifice she presents each voice distinctly, clearly defining the individual's personality and emotion. This is an excellent pairing of material and voice artist.
