Peter Ho Davies’ The Fortunes recasts American history through the lives of Chinese Americans and reimagines the multigenerational novel through the fractures of immigrant family experience. Readers applauded Davies’ “extraordinary writing about a timely issue of otherness,” calling the book “emotionally engaging and a clear, poignant account.” Particularly lauded were Davies’ characters, who, one reader said, “won my empathy, as I grieved and cheered them on in their unflagging search for identity and home."
