“Remarkable…Wang captures the strivings and uncertainty of Chinese youth establishing themselves in America and beyond…[A] deft, striking debut.” —New York Observer, Spring 2019 Must-Read Books

“Vast in scope and ridiculously accomplished, Home Remedies captures the rapidity and dislocation of our modern world. Underneath it all is a tender yearning for belonging, self-possession and connection. Xuan Juliana Wang is singing an incredibly complex song of hybridity and heart.” —Justin Torres, author of We, the Animals

Artful, funny, generous and empathetic… a radiant new talent.” —Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies

These dazzling stories interrogate 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

“With style, verve and grace, Wang’s stories surprise and challenge in wonderful ways.
“ — Weike Wang, author of Chemistry
 
“Tasty little bits of perfection. One of the great debuts of the year.” —Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story

Excellent… Wang boldly explores what it means to be a Chinese millennial and seamlessly captures the longing of an emerging generation.’ —Booklist

‘Wang’s formidable imagination is on full display in this wide-ranging debut collection about modern Chinese youth. Wang proves herself a promising writer with a delightfully playful voice and an uncanny ability to evoke empathy, nostalgia, and wonder.’ —Publisher’s Weekly

“Wang’s stories are spare and haunting, with endings that leave characters just as unsettled as their beginnings… it fully embraces Wang’s love of the uncannyas a way to parse generational misunderstanding or the surreality of contemporary life. A sharp and poignant collection.” —Kirkus
