In Accomplice to Memory, Q.M. Zhang pieces together the mystery of her father's exodus from China to the US during the two decades of civil and world war leading up to the 1949 revolution. But after a lifetime of her father's secrets and lies, Zhang's efforts to untangle the truth are thwarted by the distance between generations and her father's growing dementia. One day, late in his life, Zhang's father tells her a story she never heard before, and suddenly, all of his previous stories begin to unravel. Before she can get clarity on the new information, her father is hospitalized. Armed with history books and timelines, Zhang sits at her father's bedside recording accounts of love, espionage and betrayal, attempting to parse out the truth. Part memoir, novel and historical documentary, this hybrid text explores the silences and subterfuge of an immigrant parent, and the struggles of the second generation to understand the first.

From the Inside Flap:

"In comic book parlance, the blank space between illustrated panels is called 'the gutter.' It's in the gutter where the real story comes to light, where time past and time future meet, and where readers turn fragmented images into coherent narratives. In Accomplice to Memory, Q.M. Zhang constructs her own 'gutter' out of an assemblage of aesthetic forms--moving between photography and memoir, history and poetry, and essay and fiction--to artfully excavate the truths behind Zhang's father's escape from China and his subsequent life in the US. History is filled with the voiceless and nameless, those who have disappeared into obscurity. Accomplice to Memory works to revive the lost, to memorialize the author's father and the many thousands who fled the wars that roiled China during the 20th Century." --Paisley Rekdal, author of Intimate: An American Family Photo Album.

From the Back Cover:

"Accomplice to Memory is a stunning achievement, an exquisitely rendered map to the mysterious territory of history, memory and imagination." --Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being

"Q.M. Zhang has written one of the great fathers of recent literature, a father too large and restless for a single room. Thus, we have a whole house of him, built of memoir, fiction, documentary, and image." --Paul Lisicky, author of The Narrow Door: A Memoir of Friendship
