ON SUCH A FULL SEA jacket

On Such A Full Sea // Chang-rae Lee.

Unassumingly remarkable Fan abandons the confines of B-Mor, leaving her former citizens mouth gapping and hungry for succulent dossier. According to the most infectious of rumors and the gate security vid, she seems to have left to find her love, Reg, with audacious volition. And it is this daring dart-ness, not manifested by outward appearance but from outward circumstances, that circumscribes Fan with auspicious company. So, the collective narrator bemoans and cheers the fall and rise of “our Fan,” while at once eschews and swallows the contemplations of life’s fragility.

Lee’s latest novel of dystopian flavor challenges the individualism and volition of our day. This heart-wrenchingly refreshing story reminds us that this particular heroine is one because of her unexpected party.
