“I read for two nights, sleepless, my heart pierced by Adeline Yen Mah’s account of her terrible childhood. Falling Leaves is a potent psychological drama pitting a stubborn little girl against the most merciless of adversaries and rivals: her own family. I am still haunted by Mah’s memoir.”
 —Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club

“Painful and lovely, at once heartbreaking and heartening.”
Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

“Brilliant, compelling, and unforgettable. A heartrending modern-day Cinderella story set against the turbulence of twentieth-century China. Autobiography at its best.”
Nien Chang, author of Life and Death in Shanghai
