“Everything about this novel rings true. . . . Original, funny, disarmingly oblique and unique.”—The Guardian
A dramatic story of WWII espionage, betrayal, and loyalty, by the #1 bestselling author of Life After Life
In the title story of this timely and innovative collection, a young woman wearing a Prada coat attempts to redeem a coupon for plastic storage bins while her in-laws are at home watching the Chinese news and taking her private phone calls. It is the lively and wise juxtaposition of cultures, generations, and emotions that characterize May-lee Chai's amazing stories.
