Myths. In her debut novel titled, Bestiary, K-Ming Chang introduces readers to three generations of women who navigate through a world of myth and reality. If you’re comfortable with a woman growing a tiger’s tail and remain at ease while unsure what’s real and what’s imagined, you’re likely to enjoy this novel. Chang’s writing will appeal to readers who appreciate literary fiction, and the motifs of water, snakes and keys will delight such readers. Personally, I don’t know enough about Taiwanese mythology to appreciate the references, but I found the writing engaging and imaginative. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase Bestiary from amazon.com.
