From author and filmmaker Sandi Tan, director of the acclaimed documentary Shirkers, comes a novel about a neighborhood of immigrants, seekers, lovers, and lurkers.In a suburban LA neighborhood, neighbors keep wary distance and at times collide, propelled by desire, fury, and mischief. Precocious Korean American sisters Mira and Rosemary find their world rocked by a suicide; a charismatic and creepy drama teacher grooms his students; an aging gay horror novelist fights loneliness; and a white mother and her adopted Vietnamese daughter deal with lifelong anger issues. Spanning decades, and bringing together a diverse and interlocking group of stories, Lurkers is a Los Angeles masterpiece, showing Sandi Tan’s fiction to be as formidable and exciting as her filmmaking.

“The Black Isle is an elegant, disturbing and satisfying read, both epic and intimate.”
Los Angeles Times on The Black Isle
“Beautifully written, with a storyline that spans 70 years, The Black Isle is a historical novel that is both breathtaking and haunting.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer on The Black Isle
“A young woman grows old with the twentieth century, haunting her own life as history conspires to render her a secret. Sweeping in scope, impressively imagined, ruthlessly readable.”
Steve Erickson, author of These Dreams of You on The Black Isles
