"Lisa See has written her best book yet. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is achingly beautiful, a marvel of imagination of a real and secret world that has only recently disappeared. It is a story so mesmerizing the pages float away and the story remains clearly before us from beginning to end."—Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and The Opposite of Fate: A Book of Musings

"Only the best novelists can do what Lisa See has done, to bring to life not only a character but an entire culture, and a sensibility so strikingly different from our own. This is an engrossing and completely convincing portrayal of a woman shaped by suffering forced upon her from her earliest years, and of the friendship that helps her to survive." –Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha

"[A] marvelous narrative . . . a timeless portrait of a contentious, full-blooded female friendship."—Entertainment Weekly (Editor's Choice)
