"The Japanese Lover is animated by the same lush spirit that
has sold 65 million copies of her books around the world... a novel
that's a pleasure to recommend."--The Washington Post
"With The Japanese Lover, Allende reminds us that, while not everyone has a true love, we all have loves that are true. Whether they be passionate, familial, unrequited or timeless, the one constant in our lives is love. And Isabel Allende celebrates them all, beautifully."--USA Today
"The Japanese Lover is a poetic and profound meditation on the power of love: a common theme, sure, but in Allende's capable hands this trope is made utterly new."--Bustle
"Isabel Allende's oeuvre ranges widely...but The Japanese Lover, her lushly detailed new work, may be her most expansive yet..."--Library Journal
