"Authentic and complex.... Sophisticated and compassionate.... Moving.... [It is] a vision of what it means to be human, and in that resonance lies this collection's triumph."-The Washington Post

"Masterful.... Sophisticated.... Beautiful prose.... Divakaruni delivers poetic renderings of her characters' thoughts and sensations as they think and feel their way around cultural obstacles and emotional snags."-Chicago Tribune

"Divakaruni's stories will touch everyone who reads them.... It is her gift for language and her ability to cast sentences of exquisite beauty that make her such a high-performance writer."-USA Today

"Magical.... Each [story] is a clear, compressed gem of intelligence and insight.... Entertaining...beguiling...lyrical...poignant.... Divakaruni is one of our finest chroniclers of the trials of life among first-generation Americans.... Her prose style is elegantly and gracefully formed, intermingled with aphorisms, dreams, letters and moments of perfect imagery and metaphor.... Irresistible and seductive, The Unknown Errors of Our Lives is shaped by the voice of a true storyteller, each piece filled with private charm and wise empathy."-The Oregonian
