Description

"This dazzling collection interrogates the fractures, collisions and glorious new alloys of what it means to be a Chinese millennial. Xuan Juliana Wang has the dark soul of an old poet's inkwell, the deep knowing of an ancient remedy, and linguistic incandescence of a megacity skyline." - Adam Johnson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Orphan Master's Son. In twelve stunning stories of love, family, and identity, Xuan Juliana Wang's debut collection captures the unheard voices of an emerging generation. Young, reckless, and catapulted toward uncertain futures, here is the new face of Chinese youth on a quest for every kind of freedom. From a crowded apartment on Mott Street, where an immigrant family raises its first real Americans, to a pair of divers at the Beijing Olympics poised at the edge of success and self-discovery, Wang's unforgettable characters - with their unusual careers, unconventional sex lives and fantastical technologies - share the bold hope that, no matter where they've come from, their lives too can be extraordinary. Crossing the boundaries of space and time, and fusing cultural heritage with the chaos of the modern world, Home Remedies announces the arrival of beguiling new voice in American fiction.
