Book Description

A stunning first book from one of the Chinese-Canadian communityís most insightful and grippingly honest young voices, Intimate Distances is a deep exploration of the vicissitudes of interpersonal connection and family relationships. Lam writes poignantly and vividly about her background: her fatherís early death during her childhood, the end of marriage, the gradual loss of her mother to Alzheimerís and, most recently, childbirth.
