Dear Cyborgs is a tiny book; in your hand it’s almost lighter than air. And the writing has an airy lightness to it to: not funny-light, but nimble and light on its feet, even as it deals with such weighty matters as how to maintain an activist life in the face of oppression and failure. Grounded in the story of two boys growing up isolated and Asian in the Midwest who turn to comic books for solace and inspiration, Lim’s little novel leaps, in fragments of story, between the realistic and the fantastic. When I reached the end I wanted to turn around and start again, in part because there were still many mysteries to sort out, and in part because I loved being in the strange world it created.
