Overview

"Tan's lovingly laid out and masterfully rendered tale about the immigrant experience is a documentary magically told." — Art Spiegelman, author of Maus

"An absolute wonder." — Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis

"A magical river of strangers and their stories!" — Craig Thompson, author of Blankets
