about this item
Deep Singh wants out out of his family, out of his city, and more than anything, out of his life. His parents argue over everything, his dad passes his evenings shouting at the television, and his brother, who hasn’t said a single word in over a year, suddenly turns to him one day and tells him to die. So when Lily, a beautiful, older, and married, woman, shows him more than a flicker of attention, he falls heedlessly in love. It doesn’t help that Lily is an alcoholic, hates her husband, and doesn’t think much of herself, or her immigrant Chinese mom either. As Deep’s growing obsession with Lily begins to spin out of control, the rest of his life seems to mirror his desperation culminating in the disappearance of his brother and the devastating consequences of racism.
