Reviews
"This is such a beautiful and powerful book about one of my idols. The drawings and the included soundtrack makes the story so real and emotional. Everyone should know the amazing life and golden voice of Ros Serey Sothea." --Chhom Nimol, Lead singer of Cambodian rock band Dengue Fever
"The Golden Voice will tug at your heartstrings if you dare to listen to Ros Serey Sothea's storytelling through her most beautiful and memorable classic songs along with other Cambodian legendary rock luminaries whose songs have been masterfully selected for the wonderful novel."--Chanrithy Him, international speaker and author of the internationally acclaimed, award-winning memoir When Broken Glass Floats: Growing Up Under the Khmer Rouge
"A delicate balance between biography, storytelling, and history to immerse the reader...Comics about the history of Cambodia and its people are having a bit of a moment, and this is a beautiful addition readers won't want to miss."--Booklist Starred Review
"A very beautiful graphic novel that deserves to see the light of day. Such a poignant life story."--Tian Veasna, author of the Eisner Award-nominated Year of the Rabbit
"Ros' brilliant but short life makes for an excellent avenue to explore this tumultuous period of Cambodian history and demonstrates the ways that music can capture the spirit of a people--even after the musician is gone."--Kirkus Review
