Everything I Never Told You

by: Celeste Ng

Publisher: Penguin Press (2014)


Staff Pick by comrade: Nat!

Ng speaks explicitly to the Asian American experience here, where every word is used to examine both family/generational trauma + the broader immigrant experiences of Asians. While set in the 1970s + modes of racism have changed in some ways, Ng's work is still relevant + moving. I felt seen in this book.
