The Unpassing - Chia-Chia Lin

Staff Pick

Ignored by his grieving family after the sudden death of a sibling, our young narrator ricochets back and forth between an increasingly chaotic home life and the woods outside his home in coastal Alaska. Both environments are treacherous in their own way, and so full of opposite extremes that the overall effect is one of disturbed equilibrium. With an aching lyricism, Lin exposes the raw physicality of childhood and family life in a way that feels completely new.
