“I loved the book! I'm so happy Gish Jen has put her tremendous novelistic talents to giving a deep psychological examination of how place, habits, and identity mix in our world. Today we are often encouraged to give one sentence summaries on almost any subject. Since identity is such a complex subject, it makes me glad that Gish Jen has the courage and patience to make a deep layered study of it. This is not a luxury enterprise, but a necessary one, because, these days, when a person is charged with making an important decision based on simplistic views of humanity, we all end up losing.”
“A fascinating, brilliant book that gripped me from page one. Subtle, erudite, and daring, The Girl at the Baggage Claim is a tour de force by one of the most insightful writers of our time.”
—Amy Chua, the John M. Duff Jr. Professor of Law at Yale Law School, and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
