Book Summary

Small Beauty tells the story of Mei, who in coping with the death of her cousin abandons her life in the city to live in his now empty house in a small town. There she connects with his history as well as her own, learns about her aunt’s long-term secret relationship, and reflects on the trans women she left behind. She also brushes up against some local trans mysteries and gets advice from departed loved ones with a lot to say.

    This book broke my heart.

    It is exactly what it says on the cover: a small beauty.

    i>“The city, despite all the ways it pushed callouses into her, softened her tolerance for cold. She used to spend whole days in snowy woods, lost and a little stoned. Now she stays on the path as best as she can, for a few hours at most. She feels her blood heating up as she takes step after careful step, keeping a pace that is more habit than intention. Her feet break through the crust of fallen snow, lost for an instant below the brittle curvature of the trail. A shell cracking. Her thighs sting from the cold, and her sweat freezes on the hair of her brow. Where she had been engulfed in the landscape as a child, she is now caught in her body’s reaction to it.”

    “They listen to the radio. Leave it all behind. Forget your life before. Make up your mind, live for now! The previous song had the same message: risk everything, do something adventurous, follow a devastatingly handsome young white boy to sure and certain heartbreak. Cut the strings that hold you.”

    a quiet (despite its moments of transmisogynist violence), many-layered, skillfully executed book, especially for one so short. although the main part of the narrative is set in the winter, it feels more autumnal to me somehow — so much so that I was considering making seasonal shelves and trying to sort books based on their vibe. thinking about silence and water and being in a body and setting the world on fire.
