The collected regrets of clover 

Clover Brooks, a death doula, devotes her life to assisting the terminally ill in making peace with their condition while trying to fulfil their final wishes. The issue is that Clover is better at ensuring that others die than she is at living peacefully.

She performs admirably during working hours, but after that, she spends the rest of her life feeling isolated, depressed, and awkward around people. It occurs when a dying woman's final wish sends Clover in search of a former love interest from her youth. This forces Clover to confront her fears and consider whether she is courageous enough to live without looking back.

Even though this book discusses death, it is not gloomy or dark. The narrative is lovely, endearing, uplifting, and inspiring.

Kim Fu's book contains 12 daring stories with characters dealing with situations that straddle reality and fantasy. Kim Fu offers a subtly profound commentary on the intersections of technology, love, and loss in the area where lines blur.

In one tale, a girl mysteriously develops wings, forcing her friends to take stock of their rapidly changing adolescent bodies.

In another such tale, an insomniac becomes dependent on the sporadic appearances of a strange man made of sand who can make him fall asleep. In addition to this, there is a horrifyingly bizarre story about a couple who repeatedly kill each other to maintain their relationship.

These stories by Kim Fu are fantastical and deftly hint at the underlying crises. Fu elevates magical realism to thrilling new levels by setting all her characters' relatable emotional struggles within a gorgeously designed world.
