Nicole Chung

In conversation with Kalani Kapahua of Third Place Books
All You Can Ever Know

Nicole Chung was born severely premature, placed for adoption by her Korean parents, and raised by a white family in a sheltered Oregon town. From childhood, she heard the story of her adoption as a comforting, prepackaged myth. She believed that her biological parents had made the ultimate sacrifice in the hope of giving her a better life, that forever feeling slightly out of place was her fate as a transracial adoptee. But as Nicole grew up—facing prejudice her adoptive family couldn't see,

finding her identity as an Asian American and as a writer, becoming ever more curious about where she came from—she wondered if the story she'd been told was the whole truth.

Bury My Heart at Chuck E. Cheese’s

Bury My Heart at Chuck E. Cheese’s is a powerful and compelling collection of Tiffany Midge’s musings on life, politics, and identity as a Native woman in America. Artfully blending sly humor, social commentary, and meditations on love and loss, Midge weaves short, stand-alone musings into a memoir that stares down colonialism while chastising hipsters for abusing pumpkin spice. She explains why she does not like pussy hats, mercilessly dismantles pretendians, and confesses her own struggles with white-bread privilege. Tiffany Midge is a citizen of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and was raised in the Pacific Northwest.

All Along the Watchtower: A Matt Rossiter Mystery

The Vietnam war is long over. Or so Seattle PI Matt Rossiter thought. But now, in 1999, almost three decades later, somebody is killing his former platoon members. After his hated wartime sergeant’s body has been found on Jimi Hendrix’s grave, with an ‘Are You Experienced?’ button pinned to his chest, and an attempt is made on his own life, Matt races to warn his old platoon and is increasingly haunted by his own actions during the war.
