Publisher Comments:

In Women of the Silk Gail Tsukiyama takes her readers back to rural China in 1926, where a group of women forge a sisterhood amidst the reeling machines that reverberate and clamor in a vast silk factory from dawn to dusk. Leading the first strike the village has ever seen, the young women use the strength of their ambition, dreams, and friendship to achieve the freedom they could never have hoped for on their own. Tsukiyama's graceful prose weaves the details of "the silk work" and Chinese village life into a story of courage and strength.

About the Author

Born to a Chinese mother and a Japanese father in San Francisco, Gail Tsukiyama now lives in El Cerrito, California. Her novels include Dreaming Water, The Language of Threads, The Samurai's Garden, and Night of Many Dreams.

Emily Keeling, April 22, 2009 (view all comments by Emily Keeling)
This is a well-written, insightful, and truly emotional novel. Gail Tsukiyama creates a true masterpiece of Asian-American literature, perfect for fans of the genre itself and/or for those who liked 'Memoirs of a Geisha'.
