  • Absolutely stunning . . . Assured, bold, and electrifying, If I Had Your Face marks the entrance of a bright new voice in fiction

    Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of DAISY JONES & THE SIX
  • Each voice in this quartet cuts through the pages so cleanly and clearly that the overall effect is one of dangerously glittering harmony. The tale told here is as engrossing as a war chant, or a mosaic formed with blades, every piece a memento sharpened on those unyielding barriers between us and our ideal lives.

    Helen Oyeyemi, award-winning author of GINGERBREAD
  • If I Had Your Face is hilarious, cuttingly observant, feminist, and all-around delightful. It is hard to write a book about four protagonists and make you care for all of them-yet somehow Cha succeeds.

    Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, Costa-shortlisted author of 'Starling Days'
  • Troubling, kaleidoscopic, and hugely enjoyable

    Nell Zink, author of THE WALLCREEPER, NICOTINE and MISLAID
  • It's difficult to believe this is Frances Cha's first novel-she's a masterful storyteller. I couldn't put IF I HAD YOUR FACE down; I was riveted by the stories of four young women navigating life in the extreme, competitive environment of modern Seoul. I loved reading about a world I knew nothing about, and from the first page, it was clear Cha was the best possible guide. I highly recommend this novel.

    Ann Napolitano, author of DEAR EDWARD
  • Wonderful... unsettling and deeply affecting - the writing is beautifully spare, and captures with such clarity what it means for these four young women to be taught to hope for everything and yet continuously to receive nothing

    Rosie Price, author of WHAT RED WAS
  • Compelling, understated, casually brutal, and very cynical. I love it.

    Hanna Jameson, bestselling author of 'The Last'
  • If I Had Your Face is a vivid, eviscerating depiction of social realism in contemporary Seoul. Frances Cha renders gender and class struggles with forensic detail, in a luminous voice both knowledgeable and compelling.

    Sharlene Teo, author of 'Ponti'
  • I love the way Frances Cha rotates between mindsets to look at how beauty and privilege influence the way women live, whilst maintaining a sly lightness

    Rebecca Watson, author of 'little scratch'
  • Make way for Frances Cha, an entrancing new voice who guides us into the complexities and contradictions of modern-day Seoul... I devoured it in a single sitting, and so will you.

    Janice Lee, NYT Bestselling Author of THE PIANO TEACHER
