Angela Tung

Oversharing on the internet since 2005.


A former corporate cog and long-time New Yorker, ANGELA TUNG is a writer in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work has appeared in The Frisky, The Huffington Post, Mental Floss, Quartz, Salon, The Week, and elsewhere.

Her memoir, Black Fish: Memoir of a Bad Luck Girl, has been called “a work of dark enchantment, in which history, magic, and fate loom as large as character and desire,” and “a beautiful, cultural tapestry that keeps the reader riveted.” It was shortlisted for the 2010 Graywolf Nonfiction Prize.

Angela is also the Managing Editor for the Reverb news app. She has an MS in Library Science from the Pratt Institute, an MA in Creative Writing from Boston University, where she was the fiction fellow, and a BA in English from Barnard College.

As always, she is at work on a novel.
