A profound mystery is at the heart of this magnificent novel, now in paperback, by Yiyun Li, "one of America's best young novelists," (Newsweek) and the celebrated author of The Vagrants, winner of the PEN/Hemingway award. Moving back and forth in time, and between America today and China in the 1990s, Kinder Than Solitude is the story of three people whose lives are changed by a murder one of them may have committed.
