Reviews

A particularly acute pleasure. - The Advocate
Majestically written, with wild but contained imagery. - Vancouver Sun
She sweeps our imagination with the flick of a fox's tail, the gleam of an eye. - Hiromi Goto
Lai has an excellent command of structure making the complex storytelling seem effortless, and the book is full of startling insights into dysfunctional human behaviour. - The Calgary Herald
Salt Fish Girl is a well written and highly inventive novel. - Georgia Straight
A remarkable debut. It is a magical book. - Books in Canada
