Category: New Books
Recommended by bookseller Camille Van de Velde:
"Li's empathy for her characters translates to our feelings for them - the story is well plotted, with various strands coming together to reveal a bigger picture. The owners and employees of the Beijing Duck House in Rockville, Maryland comprise a cast of characters whose experiences are not often written about; the focus on immigrant families is especially interesting because Li writes about what happens to immigrant identity after having lived in a new country for twenty years."
