"Tremendous... Showcase[s] Thorpe s fabulous versatility, insight, and humor... While the themes of the book--mania, the Holocaust, and the devastating number of ways that any parent-child dynamic can go awry--are undeniably dark, Thorpe s prose is light, often hilarious, and unshakably grounded in the concrete details of daily life... Thorpe has written an absolute winner."
"Publishers Weekly," STARRED REVIEW
Dear Fang, With Love is a beautiful story about mental illness and love.
PopSugar, 26 Books You Should Read This Spring. "

[Thorpe s] second novel, which blends the cultural history of"The Tiger's Wife"with the madcap energy of Dave Eggers, just might be her breakout book . Takes readers on a father-daughter road trip to Lithuania, where 17-year-old Vera and her father, Lucas, ponder the meaning of family and the way past mistakes and family history can seep into the present.

Switching between Lucas endearing narration and Vera s ultrateenage letters home to her boyfriend, Fang, the novel weaves a strange and strangely intoxicating web of histories, both personal and geopolitical Melancholic and whimsical at once, Thorpe s novel is wholly original.

Startling [Vera] is so unapologetically appealing, someone you root for and see the struggle of the muscle under the skin it s the language, writing, and characterization that spring the novel from a well-told-tale into one of the finest releases of 2016 Thorpe is a major talent, and reading her work will bring to mind other writers who deftly control their universes with such clarity and acuity, like Donna Tartt or Ann Patchett.
Martin McClellan, "The Seattle Review of Books "
Rufi Thorpe s"Dear Fang, With Love"resists all labels Vera and her father are each infused with a searing wit, and their time in Lithuania, as they battle with each other and with themselves, is breathtaking to behold.

Thorpe excels at immersing readers in a foreign setting . It s a beautiful novel to close out the summer: a family vacation narrative with far more depth and nuance than a typical beach read but a perfectly welcome addition to a beach tote all the same.

Reseña del editor:

A bold, spellbinding novel featuring one of the most fascinating protagonists in recent memory, Dear Fang, With Love tells the story of seventeen-year-old Vera—ravishing, troubled, wildly intelligent—who travels to Europe with her estranged father, hoping that an immersion in history might help them forget his past mistakes and her uncertain future.

Lucas and Katya were boarding school seniors when, blindingly in love, they decided to have a baby. Seventeen years later, after a decade of absence, Lucas is a weekend dad, newly involved in his daughter Vera's life. But after Vera suffers a terrifying psychotic break at a high school party, Lucas takes her to Lithuania, his grandmother's homeland, for the summer. Here, in the city of Vilnius, Lucas hopes to save Vera from the sorrow of her diagnosis. As he uncovers a secret about his grandmother, a Home Army rebel who escaped Stutthof, Vera searches for answers of her own. Why did Lucas abandon her as a baby? What really happened the night of her breakdown? And who can she trust with the truth? Skillfully weaving family mythology and Lithuanian history with a story of mental illness, inheritance, young love, and adventure, Rufi Thorpe has written a breathtakingly intelligent, emotionally enthralling book.
