Description

At their renowned writing school, every student is simultaneously terrified of and attracted to the charismatic poet and professor Miranda Sturgis, whose high standards for art are both intimidating and inspiring. As two students, Roman and Bernard, strive to win her admiration, the lines between mentorship, friendship, and love are blurred.

Roman’s first book wins a prestigious prize. Meanwhile, Bernard labors for years over a single poem. Secrets of the past begin to surface, friendships are broken, and Miranda continues to cast a shadow over their lives. All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost is a brilliant evocation of the demands of ambition and vocation, personal loyalty and poetic truth.


Praise For All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost

“Ramón de Ocampo’s performance evokes the frustrations of ambition, loyalty, literary acclaim, and resentment as Chang describes the bittersweet truths inherent in the dichotomy between talent and craft. As de Ocampo expertly differentiates the principals, the subtle quality of Roman’s confident tones sharply contrasts with Bernard’s more downtrodden sound.”
