The Strangers | Eugene Lim
2 posts | 1 read
Fiction. Asian American Studies. "Beautifully written, so precise and accurate to real life that it is (fantastically) convincing, Eugene Lim's THE STRANGERS, with its multiple interwoven strands, reveals one surprising character and relationship after the next, and culminates in a skillfully devised and satisfying resolution. A fascinating and engrossing tale."Lydia Davis "What an astonishing book! Beautiful, original, with delicious surprises lurking at the heart of sentences, of events, of all the engines of communication."Harry Mathews "THE STRANGERS is like a cabinet of curiosities put together by Georges Perec and Andrei Biely, hilarious and utterly seductive, a sharp commentary on the social and political architecture we cling to at our peril. And yet, while pulling the rug out from under the reader, Eugene Lim's book is a total pleasure."Susan Daitch "To place the storytelling act at the center of a novel is a risky strategy: the stories must fascinate. Lim's stories do (except those few that he deliberately effaces as if to give a graphic representation of self-erasure). They have the exoticism, emotional authenticity, and intellectual depth to ensure that the reader will be enthralled."Review of Contemporary Fiction

This is a review for Lim‘s short story “Returning to the Problem” day 22 of the short story advent calendar. The narrator wants to tell a story- about immigration, about the new dark age when the racists win- but stories are best when they are individual. A story for 2017-18.
