BookNAround Reviews What the Zhang Boys Know

The Virtual Book Tour continues.

Recently, the blog BookNAround posted a review of What the Zhang Boys Know that does a good job of exploring the link that ties the stories in the book together–those nosy little Zhang Boys who get into the lives of all the residents of their condo building:

They are all, in their own way, like Zhang Feng-qi, searching for love and learning to overcome the disappointments, tragedies, and unhappiness in their pasts.  Every one of them, whether they know it or not, is looking for connection in this fragmented, lonely world.  The small Zhang brothers dart in and out of each of the narratives, taking in the truth of the other inhabitants of their building, quietly noticing the tenuous, fragile bonds of the others, silent figures on the fringes of everyone’s stories.
