Praise for In the Empire of Dreams

“Highbridge captures the small sharp pleasures and private pain that gaijin [foreigners] live with… marvelously controlled performances, delicately shaded, clear-eyed, and unsentimental… [An] evocative, bittersweet novel.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Acute and eloquent.”
Tampa Tribune

“Highbridge’s precise, sensuous prose permits no sentimentality, yet this is a novel of considerable tenderness and surprising beauty.”

“Dianne Highbridge’s insight into the Japanese is sharp as a fish-knife, and her prose is as smooth, subtle, and sweet as fresh sashimi.”
—Lionel Shriver
