Let's Not Talk Anymore
A five-generation family history told through what is seen and heard, if not said
Let's Not Talk Anymore weaves together five generations of women from Weng Pixin's family, each at age fifteen. Her lineage is full of breakages--her great grandmother Kuan is sent away from her family in South China, her grandmother Mèi is adopted by a neighbor to help with housework, and her mother, Bing, is heartbroken by her father's estrangement. Pixin's own story centers on her feelings of isolation and her rebellion from her mother. She extends the line by envisioning a fictional future daughter, Rita, who questions her family's legacy. While spanning one hundred years, Pixin moves back and forth in time seamlessly, as each woman experiences loneliness and kinship, hope and longing.
