Feeling disengaged from the world, Ruth quits her job, leaves town, and arrives at her parents' home to find that her father is losing his memory and her mother is...not handling the situation well. At first glance the story seems like a tragedy, but Khong's incisive humor makes this utterly readable. For fans of Jami Attenberg, Goodbye, Vitamin is a quirky, tender look at the unexpected ways life can hit you.
