It's hard to describe what Suah is able to do in this short novella. Her narrator is straightforward and pedestrian, except for her breakout moments of passion and despair. She describes the events of 1988 in her life, which seem ordinary but were actually transformative. She looks back on these events from 10 years later, considering what has changed. And what hasn't. She is searching for her own story, her own identity. I'm not convinced she finds it. But it's an intriguing and powerful novella, in the meantime.
I got a copy of this from NetGalley.
