"A Quitter's Paradise is a glorious, pondering, heartbreaking, extremely funny, very special book. In Eleanor Lin and her family, Elysha Chang has created captivating characters, who continuously surprised, delighted, and intrigued me--so much so that I didn't want to leave them. The stories of their lives are at once intimate and universally resonant. It's truly the perfect inaugural book for SJP Lit and I couldn't be more honored to be working with the extraordinarily talented Elysha Chang." --Sarah Jessica Parker, SJP Lit

"With tenderness and humor, Elysha Chang . . . [asks] what it means for a first-generation daughter to stop striving, to want a meaningful life on different terms. A riveting, wise, and singular novel about grief, love, longing, and the mysteries of family, A Quitter's Paradise will linger in your heart and mind." --Jessamine Chan, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good Mothers

"A masterpiece that wrangles several lifetimes of wisdom, loss and heartbreak into a slim novel you can clutch to your chest, pass on to your sharpest, most mercurial friends and say: read this, feel this!" --Xuan Juliana Wang, author of Home Remedies
