really liked it
bookshelves: asia, shortstories, written-by-poc

Whaaat, I didn't realise these were short stories at first! The first one, about the girl who had no friends and was maybe gay, felt interminable. I liked the others ones OK, though. My favourite was the one about the US-based woman whose kid dies and she and her husband decide to have a new kid and upah a surrogate in China and they make friends but then it all goes wrong. I might read more Li but she is a bit, hm, New Yorker polished shell.
