I'm so impressed by the execution of this ambitious novel--and it's a debut, at that. Kupersmith seamlessly weaves together different points of view, timelines, historical references, mythologies, and more. The result is a thoughtful and creative exploration of serious themes, such as sexual violence and the impacts of colonialism in Vietnam. For such heavy subject matter, Kupersmith still finds ways to inject humor and absurdity. I was fully immersed, beginning to end. [Adrienne]
