Reviews

"Lake's strong connection to Chinese culture and society jumps off the pages of Leftover in China, in which she playfully and compellingly offers a window into the female experience in modern China, explaining fascinating concepts that are unique to modern-day society." -- What's On Weibo
"What a fascinating book. Roseann Lake captures China's tense sociopolitical climate today, as their ancient, deeply rooted traditions, values and beliefs about sex, romance and marriage clash with the powerful current trend toward individualism in this dedicated collectivist society. The aftershocks of the 'one-child' policy; Chinese women entering the market in droves; today's antiquated Chinese courtship codes; this book depicts the profound global shift in human family life with elegance, clarity, insight, humor, and verve. It's a great read." -- Helen Fisher
"Lake's... book paints a vivid picture of how China's young people, faced with a broadly conservative culture, are trying to cope." -- The Guardian
