Críticas:

It took 46 years, but at long last English-language readers are now able to enjoy one of Eileen Chang's most popular works, Half a Lifelong Romance. A dramatic story of love, betrayal, opportunism and family oppression set in 1930s Shanghai, it is an enveloping, haunting and insightful read, rich in Chang's trademark passionate prose ( Wall Street Journal)

Eileen Chang is the fallen angel of Chinese literature (Ang Lee)

A dazzling and distinctive fiction writer ( New York Times Book Review)

Chang's world is a stark and mysterious place where people strive to find their way in love but often fail under the pressures of family, tradition, and reputation ( New Yorker)

Karen S. Kingsbury's capable new translation of the novel ( The Times Literary Supplement)
