Reviews

"Elegantly and humorously told...precise and assured storytelling." --The New York Times Book Review

"Rarely does a debut novel make a reader hunger for the author's next book, but anticipation is precisely what one feels after reading A Cab Called Reliable by Patti Kim...It is the story of one young woman's attempt to span the breach between what is and what ought to be." --The New York Times Book Review

"An obvious literary prodigy...remarkably accomplished." --USA Today

"Affecting...memorable and moving." --Kirkus Reviews
