That Time I Loved You (2018)
Carrianne Leung
"Heady, necessary writing from an author brilliantly talented and exquisitely attuned to the everyday in all of its desperation and rare beauty."
An Ocean of Minutes (2018)
Thea Lim
"An Ocean of Minutes offers that rare combination of a provocative speculative setting, masterfully elegant writing, and a story that moves and haunts long after the last page. Thea Lim is an enormously talented writer."
Night of Power (2019)

"An especially important and accomplished story...elegant, complex, but propulsive and strongly cinematic."
