From the Publisher"Enlivened with an engrossing richness of detail, Women of the Silk provides a revealing look at the life and customs of China . . . succinct and delicate."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Evocative . . . warm-hearted."—Washington Post Book World
"A soft ring of feminism . . . languorous, almost dreamlike quality."—Booklist
"One of the lovliest first novels published this year."—San Francisco Chronicle
"A first novel exceptional for its exquisite writing and for its rich portrait of a woman's life in a China now lost. Her story is rendered with exceptional grace, with the clear, shining dignity of legend or song; Tsukiyama lends her voice to figures of women emboldened by their dream of growth and personal power."—Ingram
