What the community says about The Inheritance of Loss
- "This was a very beautifully written book. You might to read some things over so you can get the whole picture of what the author is trying to say. parts of it are very deep and will cause you to do that. The entire book will have you experiencing a wide range of emotions. This book will have your mind politically engaged in many different issues across the spectrum. "
- "The Inheritance of Loss uses the struggles of living under colonialism as the foundation of this story about family and hardship. With exacting and lovely prose, she shows how social and political history never truly gets erased. Not everyone will like the flowery style of writing but I found it immersive and poetic. I also felt very close to the characters and the many calamities of their lives--I could really identify with feeling like the world is a series of adversities we hope to overcome with the love and strength of others."
