One morning, Deming Guo's mother, Polly, an undocumented Chinese immigrant, goes to her job at a nail salon - and never comes home. Eventually adopted by a pair of well-meaning white professors, Deming is moved from the Bronx to a small town upstate and renamed Daniel Wilkinson. But he struggles to reconcile his new life with his memories of his mother and the community he left behind. Set in New York and China, The Leavers is a vivid examination of borders and belonging.
