The Mountains Sing affirms the individual's right to think, read, and act according to a code of intuitive civility, borne out of Vietnam's fertile and compassionate cultural heritage." — NPR   "A Vietnamese poet conjures history and fate in a luminous tale that resonates across generations as one family grapples with the psychic residue of war." — O, The Oprah Magazine “A sweeping story that positions Vietnamese life within the ?rich and luminous history of national epics like The Tale of Ki?u  and The Iliad .

Mai’, tells a comprehensive multigenerational tale, beginning in 1920s Vietnam and continuing through modern wartime. However, the larger history takes a back seat to family dynamics, demonstrating how different generations weather the burdens of conflict.” — The Washington Post , "Ten Books to Read in March"    “Good literature frees us from being trapped in our own skins by allowing us to identify with characters and see the world through their eyes.
