In this highly anticipated and remarkable book, poet Victoria Chang assembles the story of her family through fragments from her parents' lives.
he remembrances in this collection of letters are founded in the fragments of stories her mother shared reluctantly, and the silences of her father, who first would not and then could not share more. They are whittled and sculpted from an archive of family relics: a marriage license, a letter, a visa petition, a photograph. And, just as often, they are built on the questions that can no longer be answered.
Hauntingly beautiful.
