“It’s so absolutely wonderful–so fierce and strong and strange and clear, so vividly and passionately written…” – Diane Johnson

“A fascinating, savagely beautiful book. It conveys better than anything I have ever seen the jumble of inheritance and antagonisms, of folk-myth and fear, of poetic lyricism and the tongue-tied silence of profound anxiety, that have shaped the Chinese-American experience.” – Jonathan Spence

Condition: Very Good
