"Tina Tau’s. . . dedication to dreams, paradoxically, is what renders the reader wide awake. I've always wanted my own life to feel like that, and now I know for certain it can" —Raphael Cushnir, author of Surfing Your Inner Sea
"A memoir like no other. You have been preparing to read it all your life. . .This writer is someone who can stand astonished in the presence of both illumination and trouble, someone who can be ‘happy as an apple tree in bloom’ and also ‘translucent with weariness" —Kim Stafford, author of Singer Come from Afar
