The Paper Menagerie

The Paper Menagerie - Ken Liu

I loved the fantasy aspect of the paper menagerie - the home made creatures really complemented the human story. The Paper Menagerie touches upon an experience that is close to me - growing up speaking English but only just understanding my parents' first language. It captures that struggle between language and culture. A beautiful and fluid narrative which weaves magic in a well crafted way through the characters' interactions with the animated origami.
