Please check out this review of What the Zhang Boys Know at Late Last Night Books. Reviewer Sally Whitney, writing about the diverse characters in the novel in stories, says:
“Each of these people is worthy of attention. One of Garstang’s strengths as a writer is his ability to make each character distinctive, totally distinguishable from other characters in action, thought, and language . . . And yet, as memorable as each character is, the soul of the novel is the way their interactions with each other exacerbate or resolve their problems.”
I’m gratified by this reviewer’s reaction to the book.
