Lisa See: a Novelist of Merit

Filed under: book related,media related,social justice,Word Related — Honilima @ 9:29 am

Being a less than enthusiastic fiction reader when I come across a novelist I like I tend to crow about it. Lisa See is just this type of novelist. After reading and enjoying Shanghai Girls I went back to read Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and have since then been buying and saving her other novels, not wanting to run out! I have bought several copies of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan to give as gifts and have passed Shanghai Girls onto friends to borrow.

I love a novel that I can learn something from and See’s research into Chinese history and her well crafted books made me an instant fan. I highly recommend you give one a try and they’d be super book club choices too, lots to discuss in both books. Bravo!
