Praise

“A sophisticated and fiercely intelligent book… There’s something striking on every page.”—Helen Garner, author of Postcards from Surfers

“Alice Pung is a gem. Her voice is the real thing.”—Amy Tan, bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club
 

“Revelations about her painful adolescence and bouts with depression are brutally honest and recounted with superlative narrative skills.”—USA Today
 

“A fascinating book about the place that is known only by the second-generation immigrant—the place between. Alice Pung tells her story with a keen intelligence, an observant precision, and a transformative grace.”—Karen Joy Fowler, bestselling author of The Jane Austen Book Club

“Poignant, provocative, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, Pung’s rollicking tale of two worlds is not to be missed.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
