Discover Authors bloghop. Today I'm presenting Unwell, which is currently free on amazon.com (Kindle version only, through Tuesday, 4/28/2014). Here's Marie Chow to talk about her book:
The short-and-simple version of Unwell? It’s a women’s/contemporary/Asian American story:
Written as a letter to her unborn child, and with a poignant lack of emotion, a young mother shares her life story. As the child of Asian parents who moved to America early in her life, the mother shares how her life disintegrated after her parents’ divorce. From upper middle class suburban to sharing her mean aunt’s house to a one bedroom apartment in a shabby neighborhood, this mother endures the indignity that comes with the change of status. From her father’s absence to her mother becoming a married man’s mistress, her story reads like a tragic Victorian novel set in the 21st century, but that’s where the similarity ends—she is definitely not a shy country miss and she certainly did not take the easy way out.
