World and Town: A Novel

The author of Typical American and The Love Wife returns with a novel about a 50-year-old Chinese-American, Hattie Kong, who has lost both her husband and her closest friend to cancer. She moves to a small New England town and—as Gish Jen’s rich prose and generosity of understanding describe Hattie and her varied neighbors—discovers a new world as absorbing and satisfying for her as it is for Jen’s readers.
