Paper Names by Susie Luo

https://nm.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/results?qu=paper+names&qf=AUTHOR%09Author%09Luo%2C+Susie%09Luo%2C+Susie+%7C%7C+Luo%2C+Susie%2C+author.%09Luo%2C+Susie%2C+author.

Set in New York and China over three decades, Paper Names explores what it means to be American from three different perspectives. There's Tony, a Chinese-born engineer turned Manhattan doorman, who immigrated to the United States to give his family a better life. His daughter, Tammy, who we meet at age nine and follow through adulthood, and who grapples with the expectations of a first generation American and her own personal desires. Finally, there's Oliver, a handsome white lawyer with a dark family secret and who lives in the building where Tony works. A sudden attack causes their lives to intertwine in ways that will change them forever.

Taut, panoramic and powerful, debut novelist Susie Luo's Paper Names is an unforgettable story about the long shadows of our parents, the ripple effect of our decisions and the ways in which our love transcends difference.
