這一部值得讚嘆的處女作,潘相如創造了迷幻般的敘述手法,展開一個關於愛情、家庭以及悲情的故事。-- Bustle

Particularly laudable is Pans sensitive treatment of mental illness: Leigh learns many heartbreaking things about her mothers life, but those moments are never offered; as explanations for suicide; rather, its the result of her mother’s lifelong struggle with severe, debilitating depression. Dynamic, brave Leigh emerges vividly in Pan’s deft hand, and her enthralling journey through her grief glows with stunning warmth, strength, and resilience.”--Booklist, starred review

“特別值得稱道的是作者對精神疾病細膩的探索:主人公Leigh知道許多關於母親一生中令人心碎的事情,當時不曾意識到那會是自殺的理由,然而確切的說,自殺,是她母親長久與嚴重的憂鬱症對抗而導致的結果。充滿活力個性勇敢的Leigh,被作者以巧妙的手法靈活展現,而她在悲傷中的迷人之旅,更以令人暈眩的熱情、力度、和彈性,散發出無限光芒。“-- Booklist, starred review

“Pan’s emotionally charged debut is a compelling exploration of grief and the insidiousness of depression. Her narrator, an artist by nature, sees the world through a colorful, complicated lens, and the novel is steeped in its Taiwanese setting…. An undeniable message about the power of hope and inner strength.”--Publishers Weekly, starred review

這部感人的處女作,努力探討因悲傷所引發的致命的憂鬱症。故事的主人公,天生就是一位藝術家,通過繽紛多彩的鏡頭來看世界,這部小說以台灣為背景,彌漫台灣的氣息。故事傳遞出不可否認的信息 只要懷抱希望並擁有堅強的內在,就會具備不可思議的力量。--Publishers Weekly, starred review

“An evocative novel that captures the uncertain, unmoored feeling of existing between worlds—culturally, linguistically, ethnically, romantically, and existentially—it is also about seeking hope and finding beauty even in one’s darkest hours.”-- Kirkus

一部喚醒人心的小說,它捕捉到存在於這個世界上的一種不確定的,漂泊的感情 不論是文化的,語言的,種族的,浪漫的或存在的 。這本書還透露了積極的訊息,即使處在最黑暗的時刻,仍然要努力發掘希望,尋找美麗的人生。-- Kirkus

 “‘Astonishing’ is the perfect description for this book, which follows Leigh from America to Taiwan, where she meets her grandparents for the first time after her mother’s death. I was stunned by the beautiful and engaging writing in this book; the story consumed me from start to finish. It’s hard to believe that this is Emily X.R. Pan’s debut novel, especially with the perfectly executed deep and complex themes. It will definitely be a favorite among both adults and teen readers! -- Kristen Beverly, Half Price Books (Dallas, TX)

Astonishing’是對這本書最完美的註解。故事的背景隨著主人公Leigh去到了台灣,Leigh 在母親去世後,終於見到了未曾謀面的外公外婆。我被這本書美麗動人的文字和內容震撼住,通篇從頭到尾將我吞噬了。不敢相信這是潘相如的第一本小說,尤其難得的是,她經營出一個至為深刻且復雜的主題,它絕對會成為成人和青少年讀者的最愛!-- Kristen Beverly, Half Price Books (Dallas, TX)

寫 grief 是困難的決定,也是容易的滾轉,探索憂鬱像冒險的猜度,更是個迷返往復。
