This Month’s Book: A Thread of Sky By Deanna Fei

Filed under: A Thread of Sky,What is next?? — susanbright @ 5:01 pm

Irene Shen’s life is shattered when her husband of 30 years leaves her, only to be killed in a car accident shortly after. In order to reconnect with her family, Irene, a Chinese American living in New York, invites her 80-year-old mother, three daughters and sister to accompany her on a two-week tour of China.

A Thread of Sky is a remarkable debut by a gifted young novelist. Deanna Fei is an accomplished writer with keen insight into cross-cultural Chinese- American rootlessness and the ties that bind women of several generations. A wonderful book!”
-Anita Shreve, author of Testimony

A Thread of Sky is a lyrical journey through the heart of contemporary China, and the family of women who make the pilgrimage across these pages are as complicated, broad-ranging, and fascinating as the country itself. Deanna Fei is one to watch.”
-Ann Patchett, author of  Bel Canto
