The Melting Season by Ira Sukrungruang

Mysterious, misfortunate, yet strangely familiar, the characters in The Melting Season find themselves unexpectedly lost: in a blizzard,  in a battle of rival restaurants, in the seat behind that cute girl in English class.

What they discover—a disintegrating marriage, a superhero’s cape, the possibility of reincarnation—may lead them to a greater understanding of themselves, or into deeper shadows.

“Big, bold and shape-shifting… the work of a great talent and an enormous heart.”

—Madeleine Thien, author of Dogs at the Perimeter
