Alexandra Chang grew up in Northern California where she eventually became a technology journalist, including writing for Wired. She’s since moved across the country, obtained an MFA from Syracuse, and wrote her debut novel Days of Distraction. The book follows a narrator who has a similar life to Chang, but the book is far from autofiction.
