“An absorbing short novel and a brilliant erotic phantasmagoria, as poignantly poetic as it is compelling narrative.”
—Harold Bloom

“Extraordinary. . . . FireWife combines psychological depth with mythologically inclined reference points, giving it a remarkable freshness and singularity.”
—Robert Stone

“An exhilarating novella. . . . [FireWife] marks the arrival of a fresh and interesting voice in fiction. . . . Simple and provocative.”
South China Morning Post

“[Choong] has a knack for alternating between floridly sensuous prose and plainspoken abruptness a la Jamaica Kincaid. . . . [FireWife is] a testament to her talent for evoking a world fractured by cultural, class and gender gaps, yet somehow still united.”
Seven Days
