The New York Times calls Under Fishbone Clouds a book with “a magical atmosphere”.
The Scottish Review of Books says:
“The Book of Crows is a profound novel, and Meekings demonstrates a greater degree of ambition than some of his contemporaries.”
The Independent calls Under Fishbone Clouds “Lavishly imagined and skilfully narrated…’a story of quiet faith’ that still burns with the fires of change.”
Publishers Weekly calls Under Fishbone Clouds “a beautifully told love story as well as an absorbing study in Chinese folklore and history.”
The English-language edition of Women of China notes that “Despite a hefty dose of political strife, interwoven with traditional Chinese myth and folklore, Under Fishbone Clouds is a story about love and the transformations it must endure to survive.”
