“Ko’s debut is a sweeping examination of family through the eyes of a single mother, a Chinese immigrant, and her U.S.-born son, whose separation haunts and defines their lives.  Ko’s stunning tale of love and loyalty–to family, to country--is a fresh and moving look at the immigrant experience in America, and is as timely as ever.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
