Product Description

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.

“A sharp-eyed exploration of the influence of people and place on us all and considers the importance of home.” —Booklist “Tan carefully builds Alta Vista’s intersecting lives and smoothly taps into three generations of voices . . . Tan’s powers of observation make this outing worthwhile.” —Publishers Weekly
