In these stories, characters navigate fate via deft sleights of hand: a grandfather gambles on the monsoon rains, a consort finds herself a new assignment, and a religious man struggles to keep his demons at bay. Central to the book is Isabella Sin, a small-town girl—and frustrated writer—transformed into a prisoner of conscience in Malaysia’s most notorious detention camp.

"A haunting, surprising, and rebellious collection that contains multitudes." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Though I Get Home is a welcome read in American contemporary literature—an intimate and complex look into Malaysian culture and politics, and a reminder of the importance of art for social justice.” —Ana Castillo, author of Black Dove
