THE BORDER OF PARADISE by Esmé Weigum Wang is a gothic suspense that explores the ricocheting effects of mental illness and cultural dissonance. David is a man of privileged means who suffers from sporadic psychotic episodes. David’s wife Daisy, a newly arrived Taiwanese immigrant, is especially ill-equipped to deal with David’s paranoia and unpredictability. David keeps Daisy and their two children secreted in a comfortable home in the mountains, a setting that along with the novel’s haunting language creates an atmosphere of inevitable fatality, accomplishing that rare, literary feat—a thrilling story paired with terrific writing.
