Product description

Review

"Exquisite and resonant...Jin has fashioned a ruminative, capacious, covertly ironic and quietly revealing tale of one family's pursuit of the American Dream."

--Los Angeles Times

"Striking. . . . Jin's language has ripened into something extraordinary."

--The Washington Post Book World

"[A Free Life] transforms the genre.... The narrative unfolds on such an intimate, domestic scale...that it takes a while to realize that this is also an epic."

--Robert Pinsky, Slate

"A leisurely, generous tale....As vast and unbounded as the brave and overwhelming new world it describes."

--Boston Globe
