“From the making of art to the making of families, Lisa Hsiao Chen makes us realize the great beauty and courage found in everyday acts of care, work, endurance, and survival. Weaving between one daughter and her father, one artist and his work, Activities of Daily Living becomes a beguiling and brilliant meditation on what it means to live and die.”

— Viet Thanh Nguygen, Pulitizer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer and The Committed

A lucid and moving debut novel on the interconnection between work and life, loneliness and kinship, and the projects that occupy our time.
