BlurbSlow Emergencies opens with an unforgettable scene of childbirth, evokes a loving connection between a woman and man and their children, and describes an irresistible impulse to create a distance from and ultimately to abandon one's family. This powerful, seemingly negative, energy is nevertheless always a movement toward life. Lin's decision to leave her husband and daughters is rendered with compassion and understanding. The story of how her forsaken family builds a new life without her is remarkably moving.
