In Jennifer Tseng’s novel, Mayumi and the Sea of Happiness, a disenchanted wife and librarian issues a library card to a shy seventeen-year-old boy and swiftly succumbs to a sexual obsession that subverts the way she views her life. In Thrity Umrigar’s latest novel, The Story Hour, an experienced psychologist carefully maintains emotional distance from her patients, but when she meets a young Indian woman who tried to kill herself, her professional detachment disintegrates. The characters in Santiago Vaquera-Vasquez‘s story collection, One Day I’ll Tell You the Things I’ve Seen, navigate borders and border crossings–both physical and psychological–as they attempt to make sense of their increasingly complex memories and relationships.
