Reviews

"These stories by Asako Serizawa are tremendous, intimate, startling and essential; they show us how the past is so often the most powerful force in what we idly call the present."
--Rivka Galchen, author of Little Labors

"An extraordinary book--beautifully crafted, emotionally resonant and profoundly moving. Asako Serizawa imbues her characters with so much depth and generosity that I felt as if I were reading about people I already knew and loved. An intensely powerful book by a writer with endless talent."
--Molly Antopol, author of The UnAmericans

"This splendid story collection is a sword through the heart. Asako Serizawa depicts with rare acuity and nuance several generations of one far-flung family as it's buffeted by the forces of war, migration, displacement, and that ultimate crucible, time. There are no easy answers or clean resolutions in Serizawa's stories, but what you will find is the genuine stuff of human experience, rendered with precision and honesty. Inheritors is debut fiction delivered with the verve of a master."
--Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

"I was struck again and again not only by the remarkable scope and multiplicity of Inheritors but by the voices Serizawa inhabits--each is so distinct and yet wonderfully intimate. A book to be savored, slowly, overflowing with lifeblood and endurance."
--Peter Orner, author of Maggie Brown & Others

"Elegant...An assured debut."
--Kirkus
