Yellowface
by R. F. Kuang
Praise For This Book:
Viciously satisfying' and 'Addictive.' - New York Times Book Review

'Yellowface is one of the most transfixing novels I've read in ages... Kuang boldly interrogates literary hot-button issues like privilege, appropriation, and authenticity, leaving it open for readers themselves to decide where to draw the line.' - Zakiya Dalila Harris, New York Times bestselling author of The Other Black Girl

'Reading Yellowface felt like being inside a wild, brutal, psychological knife fight with a deranged clown. A merciless satire that left me screaming inside... from both its horror and humor.' - Constance Wu, star of Crazy Rich Asians and author of Making a Scene 'Well-executed, gripping, fast-paced novel.' - NPR

'It's addictive, shocking, compelling, ridiculous, and extremely fun to read by turns.' - Paste Magazine

'At once a brilliant satire that mixes horror and humor; a nuanced exploration of race, heritage, identity, and diversity in publishing; and an honest look at the hell that is social media, this might just be Kuang's best.' - Boston Globe

"Yellowface is a brittle, eviscerating read that affected me bodily. Kuang's oeuvre consistently finds new ways to expose and interrogate systems of power, in this case tackling the commodification and consumption of art with both swagger and sophistication. Yellowface really is THAT bitch." - Olivie Blake, New York Times Bestselling author of The Atlas Six

'A spiky, snarky, shady, smart, sinister take on white privilege.' - Nikki May, author of Wahala 'Yellowface is brilliant satire--thought provoking, thrilling, and hitting a little too close to home. A must read commentary on the line between representation and exploitation and those who are willing to cross it for fame. Everyone in publishing's wide orbit should read this, and take a long look in the mirror.' - Vaishnavi Patel, New York Times Bestselling Author of Kaikeyi

'Yellowface is a spicy, satirical page-turner that skewers the racism and tokenization in the publishing and entertainment industries, the vanity of social media, and the lengths at which people will go to remain in the glaring spotlight.' - Tracey Lien, author of All That's Left Unsaid
