Seeking to reconcile the suicide with the image of Chang's perfect life, Kamen searched her memory and scoured Chang's letters and diaries to fill in the gaps of Chang's personal transformationfrom ex-shy person to world-class speaker and international rights pioneerand her later decline into mental illness. The result is a riveting narrative that is part detective story, part psychological drama, part homage to a friend (Helen Zia).
