Beautiful as Yesterday - "One of 50 notable Bay Area books in 2009" by San Francisco Chronicle

 

"Fan Wu is an exciting storyteller with an original take on the disarray of family history and American culture, and, ultimately, how we manage to define ourselves. Beautiful as Yesterday is a story with intelligence, insight, and heart."
--Amy Tan, bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club

"A book for the new millennium. Told half way between here and there, Beautiful as Yesterday holds a mirror to America as much as it tells us about contemporary China...Fan Wu tells tales of modern Chinese women without mythologizing or romanticizing their lives. Her stories are foreign and familiar all at once, her writing beautiful and spirited..."
-- Sandra Cisneros, bestselling author of House on Mango Street

"A delicate and brilliant novel on the arguments, triumphs, loves and differences of a Chinese family in America."
-- Xinran, author of China Witness and Good Women of China

“This novel explores the consequences of trapping one family between two nations. Placidly paced, and eschewing claims to grandeur, the story traces familial and cultural values as they transfer between generations and geography.”
-- San Francisco Chronicle
