Description

"THE WISEST AND MOST CAPTIVATING NOVEL TAN HAS WRITTEN" -The Boston Sunday Globe

"TRULY MAGICAL...UNFORGETTABLE...The first person narrator is Olivia Laguni, and her unrelenting nemesis from childhood on is her half-sister, Kwan Li... It is Kwan's haunting predictions, her implementation of the secret senses, and her linking of the present with the past that cause this novel to shimmer with meaning and to leave it in the reader's mind when the book has long been finished" - The San Diego Tribune

"HER MOST POLISHED WORK... Tan is a wonderful storyteller. and the story's many strand-Olivia's childhood, her courtship and marriage, Kwan's ghost stories and village tales-propel the work to its climatic but bittersweet end."-USA Today.

TAN HAS ONCE MORE PRODUCED A NOVEL WONDERFULLY LIKE A HOLOGRAM: Turn it this way and find Chinese-Americans shopping and arguing in San Francisco; turn it that way and the Chinese of Changmian Village in 1864 are fleeing into the hills to hide from the rampaging Manchus...THE HUNDRED SECRET SENSES doesn't simply return to a world but burrows more deeply into it, following new trails to fresh revelations." Newsweek
