100 Words or Less
I could not drag myself past page 50. Every page seemed so leaden, with the convenience of plot the main drive, rather than anything real or interesting.
I believe that this sort of storyline of hidden family secrets and immigrant experience has been drained of all originality. These stories aren’t bad, they're just not new. And that doesn’t keep me reading.
This wonderful author never fails to break open my heart.
Each story evokes such feeling. Love her work.
