999.00

In Chia-Chia Linís debut novel,†The Unpassing, we meet a Taiwanese immigrant family of six struggling to make ends meet on the outskirts of Anchorage, Alaska. The father, hardworking but beaten down, is employed as a plumber and repairman, while the mother, a loving, strong-willed, and unpredictably emotional matriarch, holds the house together. When ten-year-old Gavin contracts meningitis at school, he falls into a deep, nearly fatal coma. He wakes up a week later to learn that his little sister Ruby was infected, too. She did not survive. With flowing prose that evokes the terrifying beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, The Unpassing 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.
