Product Details

Praise

“Exquisite and resonant…Jin has fashioned a ruminative, capacious, covertly ironic and quietly revealing tale of one family’s pursuit of the American Dream.”

Los Angeles Times

 

“Striking. . . . Jin’s language has ripened into something extraordinary.”

The Washington Post Book World

 

“[A Free Life] transforms the genre…. The narrative unfolds on such an intimate, domestic scale…that it takes a while to realize that this is also an epic.”

—Robert Pinsky, Slate

 

“A leisurely, generous tale….As vast and unbounded as the brave and overwhelming new world it describes.”

Boston Globe
