From the #1 bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere, comes this inspiring new novel about a mother’s unbreakable love. Celeste Ng’s latest novel, Our Missing Hearts, is a profoundly moving story of a young boy and his mother. It’s also a frightening look at racial injustice, the impact of nationalist thinking, and the risks of complacency. Our Missing Hearts is an old story made new, of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s about the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and the power of art to create change.
