A stunning first book from one of the Chinese-Canadian community’s most insightful and grippingly honest young voices, Intimate Distances is a deep exploration of the vicissitudes of interpersonal connection and family relationships. Lam writes poignantly and vividly about her background: her father’s early death during her childhood, the end of marriage, the gradual loss of her mother to Alzheimer’s and, most recently, childbirth.
