Weike Wang with Kristen Millares Young

Cited as one of 2017’s best books by the Washington Post, NPR, Ann Patchett on PBS, and others, Weike Wang’s debut novel, Chemistry (Vintage, new in paper) is a smart, coming-into-adulthood novel with a twist.

“With its limpid style, comic verve, and sensitive examination of love, need, and aspiration, this exquisitely soul-searching novel is sure to be one of the most outstanding debuts of the year.” —Sigrid Nunez.

Chemistry (appropriately enough) explodes the stereotype of the model minority. Wang’s voice is a revelation.” —Peter Ho Davies.

“The most assured novel about indecisiveness you’ll ever read. . . An emotionally devastating novel about being young today.” —The Washington Post.

Weike Wang will appear in conversation with Seattle writer Kristen Millares Young.
