Tuotekuvaus

This "powerful" (BuzzFeed) debut about love, grief, and family welcomes you into its pages and invites you to linger, staying with you long after you've closed its covers.

"I am madly in love with this book, a kaleidoscopic wonder."--T Kira Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls

How do you grieve, if your family doesn't talk about feelings?

This is the question the unnamed protagonist of GhostForest considers after her father dies. One of the many Hong Kong "astronaut" fathers, he stays there to work, while the rest of the family immigrated to Canada before the 1997 Handover, when the British returned sovereignty over Hong Kong to China.

As she revisits memories of her father through the years, she struggles with unresolved questions and misunderstandings. Turning to her mother and grandmother for answers, she discovers her own life refracted brightly in theirs.

Buoyant and heartbreaking, Ghost Forest is a slim novel that envelops the reader in joy and sorrow. Fung writes with a poetic and haunting voice, layering detail and abstraction, weaving memory and oral history to paint a moving portrait of a Chinese-Canadian astronaut family.

"Ghost Forest is the tender/funny book we can all appreciate after a hellish year."--Literary Hub
