Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[The Surrendered] is epic in scope, masterful in execution, heart stopping at times, and heartbreaking at others. The meticulous narrative unfolds over 52 years and across three continents. Nothing is rushed; nothing is overlooked.” Boston Globe
“A landmark novel about love and war…Chang-rae Lee’s The Surrendered…is impossible to put down.” O, The Oprah Magazine
“This is not a happy book, but it is a rewarding one. The Surrendered grabs your attention—sometimes terrifying you in the process—and doesn’t let go until its final moment…Breathtakingly alive.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Extremely well written, powerfully moving in places.” New Yorker
“Lee’s masterful fourth novel bursts with drama and human anguish as it documents the ravages and indelible effects of war…Powerful, deeply felt, compulsively readable, and imbued with moral gravity, the novel does not peter out into easy redemption. It’s a harrowing tale: bleak, haunting, often heartbreaking—and not to be missed.” Publishers Weekly
