Though I Get Home
by YZ Chin
In these stories, characters navigate fate via deft sleights of hand: A grandfather gambles on the monsoon rains; a consort finds herself a new assignment; a religious man struggles to keep his demons at bay. Central to the book is Isabella Sin, a small-town girl--and frustrated writer--transformed into a prisoner of conscience in Malaysia's most notorious detention camp.
Winner of the Louise Meriwether First Book Prize, YZ Chin's debut reexamines the relationship between the global and the intimate. Against a backdrop of globalization, individuals buck at what seems inevitable--seeking to stake out space for the inner motivations that shift, but still persist, in the face of changing and challenging circumstances.
