Staff Picks: Yellowface by R.F. Kuang

Yellowface traces the story of a woman who steals her dead friend’s novel and has it published to great success.  But the original writer is Asian and our antiheroine is not.  So even without knowing she is posing as the author, people begin to question her appropriation of identity.  We see her living in dread of being discovered and going to increasing lengths to justify her behavior to herself.  A concurrent theme is corruption in the publishing industry.
