The Wangs vs. The World, Jade Chang

I’m currently racing through Chang’s funny, surprising and poignant family novel that she wrote as a challenge to the typical immigrant narrative and is one of the season’s most anticipated. A fallen patriarch, a trio of siblings, a cross-country trip kick off the adventures of this unforgettable family. We’ll be running our Sweetest Debut column with the author next Tuesday; stay tuned!
