Rock Paper TigerRock Paper Tiger by Lisa Brackmann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the novel I wish I could write. Brackmann intertwines the modern-day culture of China with Iraq war offenses and an american ex-pat fleeing from forces she doesn’t understand; And does so with tight prose, authentic characters and a craftperson’s ear for voice and sub-culture. The fact that this is her first novel makes it shine all the more.
