Yellowface by Rebecca F. Kuang

Yellowface by Rebecca F. Kuang is a wickedly funny thriller that delves into the world of literary heists, friendship, and identity. The novel revolves around Athena Liu, a celebrated novelist, and her envious frenemy, Juniper Hayward. When Athena tragically chokes on a pancake, Juniper seizes the opportunity to publish Athena’s secret manuscript under her own name. Rebranded as June Song, Juniper enjoys success until a plagiarism scandal erupts. Kuang masterfully explores themes of cultural appropriation, deception, and the slippery nature of truth.
