Little Gods

Generations. The debut novel by Meng Jin titled, Little Gods, explores a question pondered often by the children of immigrants: where do we come from? Jin reveals the answer for protagonist Liya in the same way readers discover the story: in pieces, backwards and forwards, a gradual unveiling of events and memories to achieve understanding. We learn about physics, relationships and what inheritance means across generations. There are memories and ghosts, grief and joy. This novel offers more than the usually fraught mother-daughter relationship. Readers learn what’s involved in accepting reality and making decisions that we think are best.
