About the Author

Meng Jin was born in Shanghai and lives in San Francisco. A Kundiman Fellow, she is a graduate of Harvard and Hunter College. Little Gods is her first novel.
Emily Woo Zeller began her voice-over career by voicing animation in Asia. She returned to the United States in 2009 and found a natural fit as an audiobook narrator. Described by AudioFile magazine as doing an extraordinary job of varying the voices in the dialogue without losing the intimacy of the story, Emily's multilingual, multicultural framework brings a particularly unique, clear-eyed, and intimate perspective into Asian American narratives. While she specializes in Asian American narratives, Emily's work spans a broad spectrum, including young adult fiction and such titles as The Whites of Their Eyes by Jill Lepore and The Sex Diaries Project by Arianne Cohen. She also narrated Gulp by Mary Roach, for which she won an AudioFile Earphones Award.

Franรงois Chau is a voice talent and audiobook narrator.

Reviews

"A fierce and intelligent debut from a writer with longitude and latitude embedded in her vision."

-- "Colum McCann, New York Times bestselling author"

"Crossing continents and spanning decades, Meng Jin's intimate, emotionally complex debut novel is an awesome achievement."

-- "BookPage (starred review)"

"Skillfully revealed, exquisitely rendered."

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

"Artfully composed and emotionally searing, Jin's debut about lost girls, bottomless ambition, and the myriad ways family members can hurt and betray one another is gripping from beginning to end...Beautiful, intensely moving."

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

"While the love triangle is interesting, perhaps most compelling is the story of one woman's single-minded pursuit of her ambition."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"
