Catherine Kapphahn

“The memoir crackles with imagination, raw feeling, and the kind of stark empathy we come to literature precisely to experience. The two key threads of the book–the author’s and her mother’s–play off one another with a delicate harmony I’ve rarely seen in memoir, showcasing Kapphahn’s ability to use both her personal experience and her mother’s unique, striking narrative to build an intimate story about longing, identity, and how the imprints of our family histories can echo, strangely, through the actions of our present.”

–Mike Scalise, author of The Brand New Catastrophe

“By braiding together her own, present-day journey of discovery with her mother’s, Kapphahn shows us how we can be cosmically linked to those we love – across physical and temporal barriers – and emerge whole, through the will of our imagination.” 

–Brenda Lin, author of Wealth Ribbon: Taiwan Bound, America Bound
