Staff Pick

“We once gave Nikolai a life of flesh and blood; and I’m doing it over again, this time by words,” writes the narrator of Yiyun Li’s latest novel. Her son commits suicide and, in an act of grief, the narrator constructs a world where the two of them can converse again: in the realm of the novel. Li, writing the book months after her own son’s suicide, seemingly breaks barriers between life and death so that mother and son can talk for the last time. A deeply moving account of an unexpected loss and the grieving that follows.
