Overview

In Search History, an outlandish zany cyberdog chase orbits lunch-date monologues as Eugene Lim explores grief and mortality with his characteristic blend of philosophical yearning and satirical humor.

Frank Exit is dead. But while eavesdropping on two women discussing a dog-sitting gig over lunch, a friend of Frank's comes to a shocking realization: the very same dog is Frank himself, reincarnated. This epiphany launches a series of digressions and adventures, interlacing fragments of party gossip, AI-generated fiction, theoretical shaggy dog stories, and the artistic lineage of Asian American entertainers as an unlikely cast of accomplices and enemies pursues the mysterious canine. In elliptical yet propulsive prose, Search History plumbs the depths of personal and collective consciousness, questioning what we consume, how we grieve, and who we think we are.
