really liked it
Read from October 23 to November 02, 2010

This is the novel I wish I could write. Brackmann intertwines the modern day culture of China with Iraq war offenses and an american ex-pat fleeing from forces she doesn't understand; And does so with tight prose, authentic characters and a craftperson's ear for voice and sub-culture. The fact that this is her first novel makes it shine all the more.
