"Lan Cao knows how to write. She has published two fiction books previously and is one smart cookie. She has clearly passed these traits down onto her daughter as well...I am impressed and shocked by her daughter’s honesty and introspection into her mother’s experience and her own reactions to it. I think Harlan will be going far and we will be hearing from her again."

Kirkus Reviews

Jul 17, 2020 by Lan Cao
”What makes this memoir especially compelling is the way these two separate but linked perspectives illuminate silences or gaps in the stories each woman tells. For example, Cao’s probing but emotionally restrained narrative focuses on the facts of her remarkable life . . . As it celebrates the mother-daughter bond, this book reveals the added complexities that bring together refugee mothers and their American children while also maintaining a certainunbridgeable distance . . . An eloquent and affecting multigenerational memoir.“

“...the way that this book is able to interpose the mother and the daughter throughout allows the story to evolve for the reader. We get to see their lives and their relationship through the lens of how everything they have experienced has impacted them. This is a touching and beautifully crafted read.”
