Reviews

This is a delightful book . . . tells more than I ever imagined about the strangeness of being Chinese and a woman; it also gives a superb account of what it's like simply to be alive -- Victoria Radin * New Society *
A strange, enchanting book . . . As a manual of self-discovery through the channels and terrors of one's own rejected communal memory, it is unbeatable * Guardian *
As a dream - of the "female avenger" - it is dizzying, elemental, a poem turned into a sword . . . reimagining the past with such dark beauty, such precision and anger that you feel you have saddled the Tao dragon and see all through the fiery eye of God -- John Leonard * New York Times *
A book of fierce clarity and originality * Newsweek *
It [has] crossed cultural boundaries and fused literary genres in startlingly original ways * Guardian *
