Rewriting time in ‘Do Not Say We Have Nothing’

Madeleine Thien’s “Do Not Say We Have Nothing” is a novel obsessed with the past and its malleability in the hands of the present, as it navigates the history of two families over the course of three generations, from the Chinese Civil War in the 1940s to the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.

Daughter’s unearthing of her family history is as much the conclusion as it is the origin of the novel.
