and beauty, Celeste Ng dissects a microcosm of American society just when we need to see it beneath the microscope how do questions of race stack up against the comfort of privilege, and what role does that play in parenting Is motherhood a bond forged by blood, or by love And perhaps most importantly do the faults of our past determine what we deserve in the future Be ready to be wowed by Ng s

genuine kindness and in the promise of new growth, even after devastation, even after everything has turned to ash Boston Globe Ng widens her aperture to include a deeper, diverse cast of characters Though the books language is clean and straightforward, almost conversational, Ng has an acute sense of how real people especially teenagers, the slang slinging kryptonite of many an aspiring novelist think and feel and communicate Shaker Heights may be a place where things were peaceful, and riots and bombs and earthquakes were quiet thumps, muffled by distance But the real world is never as far away as it seems, of course And if the scrim cant be broken, sometimes you have to burn it down Grade A Entertainment Weekly StellarThe plot is tightly structured, full of echoes and convergence, the characters bound together by a growing number of thick, overlapping threads.Ng is a confident, talented writer, and its a pleasure to inhabit the lives of her characters and experience the rhythms of
