Jenny Zhang’s debut story collection conjures the experience of adolescence through the eyes of Chinese American girls growing up in New York City. Sour Heart examines what it means to belong to a family, to find your home, leave it, reject it, and return again.
In Turkey, a master well digger and his young apprentice are hired to find water on a barren plain. The pair will come to depend on each other and exchange stories reflecting disparate views of the world. The Red-Haired Woman is a beguiling mystery tale of family and romance, of east and west, tradition and modernity.
