I am transported to another world, into the intimate lives of characters I would normally not be related to. Gail Tsukiyama's writings have kept me reading long past the time my weary eyes want to stop. She's great! When will we see another novel from this glorious writer?

Her writing intrigues me. My mind is entrapped by the detais of others lifes. She helps me to understand the lives of those that are very much different than mine.

I loved The Samurai's Garden. I started it and finished it in one evening, bleary eyed but rivited.

I recently read The Samurai's Garden - and I really enjoyed it...I was struck by the sensitivity expressed in and for the relationships perceived by the narrator/maincharacter Stephen. I am a H.S. teacher of E.S.L., and plan to order it for next year for my advanced students. I particularly enjoyed the journalistic style of the book. My students will ,too, since a young handsome caring man is telling the story!

I started reading Women of the Silk while touring Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Shanghai, and Hangzhou. Reading this novel gave me a spiritual connection to a land, culture and time, I feel certain, as an African American Artist, I must have experienced in a past life.
Her writing flows like silk poetry in dreamscapes. The characters were almost mystical and the story bitter-sweet, the love so pure. When it ended I wept!
