Booklist released their picks for the Top 10 First Novels of 2019, and Chia-Chia Lin’s searing debut THE UNPASSING made the list!
A Library Journal Best Debut!
With flowing prose that evokes the terrifying beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, Lin explores the fallout after the loss of a child and the way in which a family is forced to grieve in a place that doesn’t yet feel like home. Emotionally raw and subtly suspenseful, THE UNPASSING is a deeply felt family saga that dismisses the American dream for a harsher, but ultimately more profound, reality.
“Lin’s majestic writing immerses the reader in the bodily experience of her characters, who writhe, paw, dig, salivate, and draw readers into their world.”–Booklist, starred review
