I found this collection of short stories interesting. Not my type reading style. What I found with these stories is that they touched on human emotions...love, loss, intelligent, wonder, etc. So, these stories were not just "stories" but ones that did make you think and ponder for a while.

While I did appreciate these stories, I did feel like I was more of an outsider trying to look in. There was never any moment where I could fully embrace the stories. This is because the characters were not really specific to any type of person. It was like the stories were of faceless people. So, I did struggle to fully become connected to what I was reading. Sometimes I would find myself rereading passages. Overall, this collection was good just not really for me.… (mere)

Quotes:
Sometimes she took you to work with her. And on those days she dressed you as meticulously as she dressed herself. Even applying a bit of Rouge to your cheeks.
I think she I was using you as a kind of prop. Similar to her high-heeled shoes. Forcing her colleagues to contend directly with that for which they might judge her.

Reason Read: TIOLI, The Millions 2020
This is a debut novel by Meng Jin (born in Shanghai, living in the US). It is about identity, immigrate, mother - daughter relationship. It is the story of Su Lan told by her former classmates, her daughter and others that had contact with Su Lan. It is a character study and not a plot driven book.
