Selected by Indie Booksellers for the January 2009 Indie Next List
“Janice Y.K. Lee makes a powerful entry into the literary world with this lush, intriguing novel of Hong Kong on the edge of World War II and, then, its aftermath. Creating characters as exotic and mysterious as the story's locale, she portrays a society that was lost, a facade that eventually brought horrific costs to most of its members.”
-- Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI
