Product Details


“One of the year’s most provocative and deeply felt first novels…a searing portrait of the immigrant experience.”&#151Vanity Fair

“With echoes of Ralph Ellison, Chang-rae Lee’s extraordinary debut speaks for another kind of invisible man: the Asian immigrant in America…a revelatory work of fiction.”&#151Vogue

“The prose Lee writes is elliptical, riddling, poetic, often beautifully made.”&#151The New Yorker

“Deft, delicate…The book’s narrative is lyrical, its plot compelling…The novel’s interwoven plots and themes, its slew of singular characters, and Henry’s ongoing recollections and reflections are rich and enticing.”&#151Boston Globe

“A tender meditation on love, loss, and family.”&#151The New York Times Book Review
