In Inheritance (W.W. Norton & Co., 2004), Hong retraces her family’s history by piecing together the story of her mother and aunt—sisters once inseparable, now in a state of bitterness and estrangement. A provocative take on a story of desire, love and family strife, spanning seven decades from 1930’s China to 1990’s America.
