Reviews

"A sophisticated and fiercely intelligent book... There's something striking on every page."--Helen Garner, author of Postcards from Surfers

"Alice Pung is a gem. Her voice is the real thing."--Amy Tan, bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club

"Revelations about her painful adolescence and bouts with depression are brutally honest and recounted with superlative narrative skills."--USA Today

"A fascinating book about the place that is known only by the second-generation immigrant--the place between. Alice Pung tells her story with a keen intelligence, an observant precision, and a transformative grace."--Karen Joy Fowler, bestselling author of The Jane Austen Book Club

"Poignant, provocative, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, Pung's rollicking tale of two worlds is not to be missed."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
