"Searing debut" --O, The Oprah Magazine

"A great writer, and subversively funny....wicked absurd sense of humor...readable and human"  --Buzzfeed

"An intriguing collection...each of her protagonists is never quite grounded, caught between multiple cultures and countries. Each hides beneath layers of deceit, clinging to lies that enable survival....Hua is a writer to watch." --Booklist
