MEDIA REVIEWS
Affecting...combines often rough action with quietly subtle emotions to create a fresh and memorable tale of a troubled man's return from war. Recommended for most public libraries -- Lawrence Rungren * Library Journal *
Unusual story...[Lee's] writing is frequently lovely, sometimes hauntingly so. -- Joanne Wilkinson * Booklist, (American Library Association) *
A lyrically evocative, haunting first novel....The writing here is deft and moving, offering vivid description of both the Montana setting and the remembered Korean landscape....The novel proves eerily suspenseful, ending on a redemptive note. A gracefully rendered, beautifully characterized tale about an unusual life. Jae-Suk Lee is a writer watch. * Kirkus, (Starred) *
A seamless narrative...beautifully crafted...remarkable...transcends Asian-American themes, the Korean War, or first novel anxieties. -- Bill Drucker * Korean Quarterly *
