    A Novel

    Urgent and brilliant, this story explores how humanity persists in the most fraught circumstances.

    "An extraordinary narrative that is both contemporary testimony and literary achievement...[Krys Lee is] one of the most elegant, impeccable voices of her youthful generation. Devotees of authors...including Jhumpa Lahiri and Adam Johnson will certainly be blessed to discover Lee's work." - Library Journal, Starred Review
