Shawna Yang Ryan
"Water Ghosts is an auspicious debut that not only entertains, but opens our eyes to a rich, poignant piece of Chinese-American history."
The Map of Lost Memories (2012)
Kim Fay
"Kim Fay's engaging debut novel, The Map of Lost Memories, not only weaves together a smart, compelling story of a quest for scrolls believed to contain the lost history of Cambodia's ancient Khmer Empire, but also gives us a glimpse into 1920's China and Indochina during the time of transition from colonialism to the beginnings of communism. With deftness and clarity, Fay brings her world to life and gives us a captivating read."
