Avra Wing


Thanks so much for visiting my website. I am the author of two novels: Angie, I Says, made into the movie Angie, and After Isaac, a young adult novel. I also write poetry and personal essays. And my blog, once in a while.

Stuff I've Written

Personal Essay

"Wing delivers an emotionally complex story of life, love, grief, and recovery." --Publishers Weekly
"Wing’s exquisite attention to detail brings forth joy."
--Laura Van Prooyen
Adult Fiction
"A charmer of a novel about a real working girl. Tina Scacciapensieri is the most appealing heroine to come along in ages."
--Shelby Hearon
Memoir --Work in Progress
At first there is pain and fear and you are a child, screaming. Your only hope is the strangers with strained faces who hover over you: that they can — unlike all the king’s horses and all the king’s men — put you back together again.
