Reviews

A gorgeous epic that seamlessly combines history and fiction to create a hybrid masterpiece. The court dancer's latest journey west should command substantial, eager audiences.
An absolute pleasure. Shin has shown us the heart of pre-modern Korea with all the heart and mind she herself always lends to her writing.
A fascinating and lyrical portrayal of a woman and a country at the crossroads of history. Beautifully and evocatively written, the moving and ultimately tragic story of Yi Jin's life resonates like the melodic sound of the Korean flute and lingers hauntingly in your mind. Highly recommended.
A meditation on the social changes that force people to confront the double-edged swords of tradition and modernism. Shin is a distinctive and engaging writer whose work richly deserves a wide American audience.
