Product Details

Praise

“Jen’s gift is for comedy that resonates, and sadnesses that arise with perfect timing from absurdities.  Her subject matter is so appealing, it almost obscures the power and suppleness of her language.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Gish Jen’s fiction is always engaging, always necessary.” —Newsday

“Nobody’s having more fun with American diversity than Gish Jen. . . . One of the greatest charms of her fiction is her position as a bemused chronicler . . . of the hugely comic potential in human nature.” —The Boston Globe

“Sparklinga gently satiric look at the American Dream and its fallout on those who pursue it.” The New York Times

“Tender and funny . . . vibrant and courageous.” —San Francisco Chronicle
