More and more, I am loving Goodreads. Reader Cheryl wrote this beautiful review of Watering Heaven that I really appreciated and you can read in its entirety at the link below. Thank you Cheryl!
The stories move from daily life to modern realism so beautifully. Liu has a taut modern voice but somehow keeps one foot solidly linking his characters to their ancestors. Liu gives his readers lyrical thought provoking sentences that are islands in his stark prose.
