Reviews

"A coming-of-age tale with a magical ferocity that recalls Doctorow and Nabokov."--Jayne Anne Phillips, author of Lark & Termite

"A beautifully written, complex story of self-discovery."--The Boston Globe

"Truong explores--and explodes--[her characters'] secrets at a captivating pace. . . . Reminiscent of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter."--The New York Times Book Review

"A searing exploration of intimacy and enmity, language, betrayal, and silence, Bitter in the Mouth is as dazzling as it is deeply emotional. It also has the best twist in its tail--ever."--Parade
