For readers of Helen Macdonald and Elizabeth Alexander, a "a swish, fascinating" (New York Occasions Ebook Assessment) portrait of grief and the seek for which means from a singular new expertise as advised by means of the prism of three generations of her Chinese language American household.
Kat Chow has at all times been unusually fixated on loss of life. She frightened consistently about her dad and mom dying—especially her mom. A vivacious and mischievous girl, Kat's mom made a morbid joke that may hang-out her for years to return: when she died, she'd wish to be stuffed and displayed in Kat's future condominium as a way to at all times watch over her.
After her mom dies unexpectedly from most cancers, Kat, her sisters, and their father are plunged right into a debilitating, lonely grief. With a definite voice that’s wry and heartfelt, Kat weaves collectively a narrative of the fallout of grief that follows her prolonged household as they to migrate from China and Hong Kong to Cuba and America. Seeing Ghosts asks what it means to reclaim and inform your loved ones’s story: Is writing an exorcism or is it its personal type of preservation? The result’s a unprecedented new contribution to the literature of the American household, and a provocative and transformative meditation on who we turn into dealing with loss.
