Reviews
Based on classical Chinese mythology, ghost stories, and legends, Chin's unconventional coming-of-age novel is a frothy and tart exploration of the Asian immigrant experience.--Carol Haggas
Wildly profane and funny riffs on folklore, chronicling the adventures of two very modern Chinese-American sisters.... A fresh, chaotic and sexy updating of the cross-cultural experience.
