Passages: Angel Di Zhang on The Light of Eternal Spring

Angel Di Zhang discusses the first pages of her debut novel, The Light of Eternal Spring, how her single point-of-view novel grew out of an idea for many more vantage points, her use of photography to help her choose her time period as well as show the progression of time, and how her background as a painter influenced her openness to emotion and character as she allowed her story to change and form intuitively on the page.

Zhang’s first pages can be found here.
