Please Look after Mom

Please Look After Mom - Shin Kyung-sook, 신경숙, Kim Chi-Young This is a zinger of a novel. (And why, why, why, I ask, am I reading this novel at this time? So mysterious.) No one is looking after Mom and, after a while, Mom just wanders off. Her family doesn't even realize she is missing until she has been lost for some time. And where does she go? No one knows for sure, but her family sees her, or what they think is her, everywhere. Told alternately from the point-of-view of the various family members, this is a powerful story. I think I would love it even if I wasn't trying harder than I've ever tried in my life to Look After Mom myself.
