Brian Leung’s deeply flawed protagonists in World Famous Love Acts present a wide and satisfying range. In the chilling ”Executing Dexter,” two boys flee the gloom of broken homes by ”killing” homemade dolls. At the center of ”White Hand,” a conflicted young man (who, like Leung, has a Chinese father and a Caucasian mother) searches for emotion at the grave of an ancestor. A couple reunites to put down their sickly canine – and reflect on the family that exists only in their memory – in the powerful ”Dog Sleep.” Each story asks a pointedly difficult question: What happens when we let our most coveted relationships deteriorate under the stress of plain ol’ everyday living? Leung reveals a plethora of fascinating answers with beautiful, concise prose and unwavering empathy.
