Praise

Winner of the Association for Asian American Studies Best Book Award in Fiction

“A tough, unsentimental, and moving novel that is a memorial not only to the heroes, but also to the survivors.” —Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer

“Sweeping . . . as epic in scope as the story is intimate.” —The Arizona Republic

“A chilling, convincing picture of Taiwan during the years of authoritarian rule.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“Ryan embraces the complexity of the situation, by not creating heroes but instead exploring the truth of compromise, survival and belonging.” —The New York Times

“Moving and suspenseful. . . . Full of compassion.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
