What it's about: Leigh, half white and half Taiwanese, recently lost her mother to suicide, but she is certain of one thing: her mother has turned into a bird. In search of answers, Leigh travels to Taiwan to visit her maternal grandparents for the first time and, while there, searches for her mother the bird while uncovering family secrets. Sprinkled with magical realism and achingly beautiful passages, Pan crafts a brilliant, lyrical, heartfelt, and astounding debut about grief, love, and the complexity of family relationships.
