Reviews

"A darkly beautiful, heart-wrenching portrayal of the Cultural Revolution's devastating social legacy."--Booklist, starred
"[T]his new novel gives readers another vivid, fascinating, and haunting look at today's China. Highly recommended."--Library Journal, Starred Review
"Sendker draws on broad knowledge of Chinese politics and mores to craft scenes both comic and tragic, illuminating how ordinary people struggle to navigate opaque, omniscient systems of power...[T]his novel offers a rich portraid of compromise and courage under a repressive state."--Publishers Weekly
