How Much Of These Hills Is Gold

In her first novel, the daughter of Chinese immigrants recounts the flight of two orphans across the prairies. In the final stages of the American gold rush, they search for a home in a strange world and are filled with longing for an identity that transcends the boundaries of origin and gender. »C Pam Zhang’s arresting, beautiful first novel is filled with myths of her own making as well as sorrows and joys.« [New York Times]
