Quotes

'Ambitious, accomplished, engrossing ... as easy to devour as a 19th-century romance'

New York Times

'This big, beguiling book has all the distinguishing marks of a Great American Novel ... [a] remarkable writer'

The Times

'Exquisitely evoked ... an epic meditation on love'

USA Today

'Explores the most fundamental crisis of immigrants' children ... an insight into the secret world of Korean America'

Observer

'It is no exaggeration to say that Lee's debut deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Eliot's great doorstopper [<i>Middlemarch</i>]. What is more, it is arguably even more fun'

South China Morning Post

'There are two memorable episodes in which an exchange of gifts reveals a gulf in regard and understanding that could have been penned by Austen herself, so well are they judged. The sisters' stories bowl absorbingly along, while their mother is also permitted a poignant starring role, receiving the same sympathetic treatment Lee extends to almost all her characters'
