Praise

“Remarkable. . . . Heartwrenching from beginning to end.” –The New York Times Book Review“Shu Wen’s remarkable story is simply told. . . . Her actions speak volumes.” –San Francisco Chronicle“This story of one extraordinary woman written by another extraordinary woman will stay with you long after closing the book.” –The Sunday Times (London)“Lyrical. . . . Illuminates a largely inaccessible country’s hardy people, its communal, religious spirit, and its continuing political struggles with its Communist neighbor.” –Entertainment Weekly“An unexpected joy. . . . This remarkable novel is an extraordinary tale that is fast-paced and packs quite the emotional punch.” –Tucson Citizen“Xinran tells the story with spare elegance, doing particular justice to the awesome emptiness and silence of Tibet…. The text paints Tibet as outside time and politics, an elemental backdrop for musing on love everlasting and noble suffering.”–The Globe and MailPraise for Xinran’s The Good Women of China:“Remarkably evocative, bursting with details that make each account haunting. These stories have all the force of good fiction.”—The Washington PostThe Good Women of China is delicate, beautiful, low-key and devastating.”—Toronto Star
