"An urgent and necessary literary voice."--Alexander Chee, Electric Literature "Tough, luminous stories."-- The New York Times Book Review "Spectacular."-- Vogue Named One of the Most Anticipated Books of 2019 by Nylon, Electric Literature, The Millions, and LitHub * Named One of the Best Books of the Season by Elle , Publishers Weekly , The Daily Beast , and New York Observer Xuan Juliana Wang's remarkable debut introduces us to the new and changing face of Chinese youth. From fuerdai (second-generation rich kids) to a glass-swallowing qigong grandmaster, her dazzling, formally inventive stories upend the immigrant narrative to reveal a new experience of belonging: of young people testing the limits of who they are, in a world as vast and varied as their ambitions. In stories of love, family, and friendship, here are the voices, faces and stories of a new generation never before captured between the pages in fiction. What sets them apart is Juliana Wang's surprising imagination, able to capture the innermost thoughts of her characters with astonishing empathy, as well as the contradictions of the modern immigrant experience in a way that feels almost universal. Home Remedies is, in the words of Alexander Chee, "the arrival of an urgent and necessary literary voice we've been needing, waiting for maybe, without knowing." Praise for Home Remedies "A radiant new talent." --Lauren Groff "These dazzling stories interrogate the fractures, collisions and glorious new alloys of what it means to be a Chinese millennial." --Adam Johnson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Orphan Master's Son " Home Remedies doesn't read like a first collection; like Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies , the twelve stories here announce the arrival of an exciting, electric new voice." -- Financial Times "Stylistically ambitious in a way rarely seen in prose fiction . . . Writing like this will never stop enlightening us. [Wang's] voice comes to us from the edge of a new world." -- Los Angeles Review of Books
