"Chung delves with aching honesty and beauty into large, difficult questions--the strength and limits of family, the definition of home, the boundaries (or lack thereof) between duty and love--within the context of a Korean experience." (starred review)
"[T]he unflinchingly honest examination of grief, anger, familial obligation, and love gives the novel a compelling emotional core."
"[The] prose is crisp and unfussy."
