"East meets West in this occasionally playful yet profoundly moving graphic memoir. . . . It’s a tale of Taoism and Buddhism, with the meditative state wondrously captured by the artist, and of the tension between the seeming passivity that spirituality appears to instill in some and the personal ambitions of others. The narrative seamlessly shifts between present and past, and between America and China, mixing the intimacy of a memoir with the artist’s visual allusions to such sources as King Lear and The Scream.
A transformational experience for author and reader alike." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
