California Book Award

"Exactly what we need to be reading in this country right now; and probably always...this collection is funny and sad, quick-witted and thought provoking" -Bustle

"Subversively funny...readable and human."- Buzzfeed

"The men, women and children in Hua's moving debut often find themselves straddling the volatile fault lines between desire and shame, decorum and rage... She has a deep understanding of the pressure of submerged emotions and polite, face-saving deceptions. The truth comes out, sometimes explosively, sometimes in a quiet act of courage."
