In Meng Jin’s stunning debut novel, characters are able to choose their future and change their past through sheer determination. Little Gods centers on the recently deceased Su Lan, whose story is told from the perspectives of the three people who knew her well: her former neighbor, her estranged husband, and her only child. Through their stories, they reveal an enigmatic woman with a laser-like focus on erasing her past — one who overcame poverty and hardship in the countryside outside Hangzhou to become a brilliant physicist in Beijing; gave birth during the Tiananmen Square massacre; and immigrated to the United States as a single mother. Her daughter Liya’s quest to bring her ashes home reveals the people and relationships forever changed by Su Lan’s presence, and the impact, on all, of the things she chose to hide. We’re excited to feature this enthralling novel as Volume 84 of Indiespensable.
