|Editorial Review||Advance Praise for THE LOST AND FORGOTTEN LANGUAGES OF SHANGHAI: "From the explosion of its first pages to the searing emotion of its last, The Lost and Forgotten Languages of Shanghai is a novel that burns with the heat of clashing cultures and love transformed. Ruiyan Xu is a wonderful writer with a perfect ear for both the words and the silences that define us." --Peter Manseau, Author of Songs for the Butcher’s Daughter "What a gem of a debut. This is the most literary kind, rarely found in fictions about new China. There is such deep silence in her prose, hinting at the depth of human suffering, anguish and hope. A gifted novelist, she gives us the insight into a Shanghai that is at once strange, and familiar, old and new, creating a literary landscape for its dwellers that is vast and beguiling, which is precisely the spirit of this metropolis, and of this fine fiction." --Da Chen, Author of New York Times bestselling memoir colours of the Mountain and Brothers (chosen as one of the best novels of 2006 by The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Miami Herald, The Salt Lake Tribune, and Publishers Weekly)|
