Reviews

"YZ Chin's eerie and brilliant novel looks closely and tenderly at the margins of life for answers to pressing questions of love and self. Where do I belong? Who am I in the face of loss? What am I willing to do for my precarious place in this world? The result is a totally engaging and emotionally resonant story of one woman's alienation, ambivalence, defiance, and humor in the face of turmoil--I won't soon forget it and can't wait to read what Chin writes next."--Alexandra Chang, author of Days of Distraction
"A quirky story of loss and limbo, Edge Case immerses us in the worries, hopes, and absurdities of life on a work visa in America. As a woman's marriage disintegrates, YZ Chin examines her complicated, ambivalent quest for American citizenship and lays bare her indelible feelings of foreignness and unbelonging. This is a timely, intimate novel unlike any I've read."--Chia-Chia Lin, author of The Unpassing
