About this title:

Synopsis: Iris Chang, best-selling author of The Rape of Nanking and tireless human-rights activist, symbolized strength to many in the literary and social justice worlds. Her fearlessness made it all the more shocking when she committed suicide in 2004 at age 36.

Long-time friend and confidante Paula Kamen, author of the critically acclaimed All in My Head, reveals for the first time the private Iris behind the bold international celebrity. She offers a tribute to the lost heroine while attempting to explain Iris's tragic psychological decline. Through letters, diaries, and her own memories and investigative journalism, Kamen fills in the surprising gaps in Chang's personal transformation, from awkward teen to world-class writer and lecturer, and finally into mental illness and paranoia. Finding Iris Chang is a portrait of a real, vulnerable woman who changed the world.

From the Publisher: "Part biography, part detective story, part memoir of a thorny but enduring friendship, this book takes us to the heart of Iris Chang's tragic life. Paula Kamen writes with astute psychological insight, the intuition of a close friend--and with the determination of an investigative reporter resolved to get to the bottom of a death as baffling as it is heartbreaking."
--Molly Worthen, author of The Man on Whom Nothing Was Lost

"Iris Chang inspired many, including me. Now Iris's life has inspired her friend Paula Kamen to write a tender remembrance of a great woman."
--James Bradley, author Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys

"Journalist Paula Kamen leaves no clue unturned in this riveting narrative that is part detective story, part psychological drama, part homage to a friend, as she peels back the complexities of Iris Chang's life and death--revealing the obsessions, frailties, significance, and, ultimately, the humanity of this legendary Chinese American woman warrior."
--Helen Zia, author of Asian American Dreams: The Emergence of an American People
