Praise

“Over the past decade there have been a smattering of literary novels that have defied convention and traditional reading demarcation lines by taking a grip on the masses…like Memoirs of a Geisha and Cold Mountain. The Rice Mother is one such book—A first novel of Eastern exoticism, myth and magic, and unforgettable characters, living and dead….You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more powerful, moving read this year.” —Glamour (UK)

The Rice Mother exudes the fascination of another world…. It possesses a genuine intimacy and passionate involvement.” —The Times (London)

“It would be difficult not to be seduced by the evocation of setting, family life, clothes, food and the intriguing mixture of myth, religion and superstition…there is a freedom and freshness in the manner in which the author explores the interior life of her characters…It possesses a genuine intimacy and passionate involvement.” —Elizabeth Buchan
