Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
“The book is less a tale of a renowned author’s vertiginous spiral into depression than it is a mother’s poignant tribute to a Chinese-American girl who achieved success through her own intelligence, hard work, and grit. The Woman Who Could Not Forget ultimately isn't a sad story, but rather a celebration of Iris’s remarkable life.”
San Jose Mercury News
“Iris was twenty-nine when The Rape of Nanking settled onto the New York Times bestseller list, making her a literary sensation while conferring a connection to her roots that she hungered for.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“Iris’ punishing work habits (she sometimes stayed up for thirty-six hours at a time) and exhaustive research helped make The Rape of Nanking a groundbreaking book. After I finished reading this powerful memoir, a little jolt of electricity went through me; I realized that Iris Chang will not be forgotten.”
