This gorgeously written novel is about at least partly the complicated grief of children magnified as it is by their limited understanding of the social mechanics of death and all too often by the failure of adults to help them through the darkness of loss Adults of course have their own loss to contend with But it s delightful to me to see and texts highlight how childhood is not a happy and carefree space and how the tender fragile feelings of children need as much or attention asthan the delicate fragile feelings of the adults who care for them Nothing is as easy for kids as we pretend it is The first person narrator of this novel is eight when his beloved toddler sister dies The little girl looms large in the young narrator s memory She was everyone s joy and light The three remaining siblings muddle through the aftermath of the child s death creating ways to cope while the parents also fall apart If this is the premise the novel is immensely complex isn t death always complex than itself The narrator s family has recently immigrated from Taiwan and lives in a desultory part of suburbanrural Alaska The children are fairly integrated with their peers but the parents struggle with the stark professional demotion that tends to accompany urgent immigration with cultural displacement with poverty and with their inability to function in a country that is not welcoming to them in any way at all This is all presented in a very understated subtle way so that it takes a bit to figure out what is going on While the narrator is now an adult he presents the events of his childhood as seen through his child eyes What struck me the most in this book is the brutality of global notions of masculinity Much is expected from the father in this new land but the father is not a strong man Under the weight of the family s expectation and the multiple failures he inevitably encounters he folds in on himself There are no second chances for men who let their families down Gentle fragile masculinity doesn t have much of a place anywhere but it really won t be forgiven at the harsh frontiers of immigration The final spectacular chapters do tremendous work to bring home the hurt that inevitably follows childhood trauma This novel is particularly urgent in this time of hatred toward immigrants of all stripes and in particular about immigrant children We are creating a generation of traumatized humans who will take way than their own lifetimes to heal Let s heed

The Unpassing Free download Ë 104 A searing debut novel that explores community identity and the myth of the American dream through an immigrant family in AlaskaIn Chia Chia Lin’s 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. 35 starsA uiet compelling novel about a Taiwanese family struggling to survive in Alaska The novel takes place in the 1980s against other tragedies such as the Challenger explosion we see this family s tragedies and resilience through the perspective of ten year old Gavin The Unpassing starts with a heart wrenching death the passing of Gavin s three year old sister and the family s grief over her loss follows them in poignant understated ways for the rest of the novel Chia Chia Len includes a lot of powerful themes in an understated way the tremendous amount of work it takes to just survive in America as an immigrant family the burden of masculinity the way nature can both accompany and isolate Several interactions between the family members took my breath away with their uiet powerful emotion like when Gavin s father tried to force him to eat a reflection of his father s insecurity how much he wanted his son to survive in an unwelcoming country and much I struggled to connect with the characters on an emotional level throughout the novel I think because I wish they each had a little weight to their characterizations Not much happens in The Unpassing which is fine but I left wanting to care about the characters to have felt attached Still a good read I would recommend to those interested in grief immigration and unassuming family stories Also check out this iconic review from a much trusted fellow Goodreads reviewer friend of mine if you want a rich take on the book
