In Yiyun Li’s Where Reasons End, a mother discovers a place where she can talk to her son who committed suicide. The reader is a privileged visitor to a sadness being expressed between the characters, different from grief or mourning. A condition of sorrowful wonder looms over this novel where everything is buried in the depths of dialogue.
