I strongly recommend this book to parents, as a parent, as a Chinese parent, as a parent with a child demanding perfection and precision from herself.
This is one of the few books that I finished reading from cover to cover without skipping a single line.
I know many Chinese parents send kids to the Iowa Writers' Workshop, or Iowa Writers' Workshp has come up several times in this forum, the auther, Yiyun Li is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop.
As the book cover sleeve reads" Written with originality, precision and poise, Where Reasons End is suffused with intimacy, inescapable pain, and fierce love".
As a new year approaches, I resolve to read all of her books, (I know it will fail, at least, I will read some more)
