our missing hearts

our missing hearts by celeste ng is not a dystopian novel. it is set in a plausible near-future version of the united states where anti-immigrant and anti-asian policies are accelerated. it is very informed by the policies pursued under the trump administration and the quiet complicity of many or most americans (especially us white ones) in the rise of a new fascism.

structurally, i really liked how the story circles back on itself to re-tell different aspects of the story from different points of view.

it is pretty devastating, and i highly recommend it.
