Last of Her Name by Mimi Lok

Staff Pick

The intimacy of Lok's beautiful story collection reflects her skillful narrative weaving of heart, understanding, and empathy. While the pieces range in subject, they center on people we are likely to forget--overlooked women--and the group is bound in the quiet way Lok’s characters search for connection through the pervasive loneliness, displacement, and misunderstanding that colors the way we view both strangers and those we hold dear. You will lose yourself in Lok's prose and emerge more conscious of every person’s deep inner life; though we may forget each other in the day-to-day whirl, this book is a powerful reminder of the nuance that each person’s story holds. I couldn’t put it down. It left me aching, yet full of hope.
