A drowned piano. A rogue limousine. Green pepper pizza. From the streets of New York to a beach in Fukushima, a slow parade of characters follow familiar routines, only to wind up far from home. Coda is a collection of stories from the curious year of 2020; a time when the present came second to anger and memory. With this debut, Huei Lin gives voice to the madness lurking beneath every well adjusted life, weaving tales of longing and adventure for the modern world.
"A tonal tour de force, Coda draws the reader into a range of worlds both magical and sardonic. Within those landscapes, Lin’s stories tackle the fundamental questions of the human artist trying to survive in a society hyper-focused on commerce and appearance, asking how then should we live and where should we place our trust? The result is a powerful debut collection of stories that engage and entertain the reader on every page."
