“History, like light, is porous, multitudinous, endlessly haunted. Names of Light gives form to the unresolved and inaccessible remnants of the past, all of the ghosts that are proliferated just by our moving. We are constantly ghastly and ghostly, the text reminds us, and the indeterminacy of flesh is the indeterminacy of family and legacy. Thirii Myo Kyaw Myint is one of the most remarkable writers of our time, and Names of Light is a piercing and heartbreaking revelation." Janice Lee, Author of DAMNATION and THE SKY ISN'T BLUE.

Names for Light: A Family History by Thirii Myo Kyaw Myint
