In Sandy Tseng's first collection, leaving is both what remains and the act of going to another place, a different lifestyle, an unknown afterlife. This book recounts the pleasures and terrors of transition, of being "in between languages." We travel with Tseng, learning that the sediment of our lives--received traditions, half-recalled memories, accrued possessions--might also be the fragments by which we recognize a future life, here or elsewhere.
