Synopsis of the book «Yellowface» by R.F. Kuang
Delve into the thrilling and darkly humorous world of “Yellowface” by R.F. Kuang, a New York Times bestselling author. This captivating novel explores the complex and controversial themes of diversity, racism, and cultural appropriation within the publishing industry and beyond.
Meet June Hayward and Athena Liu, two rising authors with a shared history at Yale, but vastly different trajectories in their writing careers. While Athena garners accolades as a cross-genre literary sensation, June struggles to find an audience for her stories of “basic white girls.”
Fate takes a twisted turn when June witnesses Athena’s tragic death and seizes the opportunity to steal her unfinished masterpiece—a groundbreaking novel about the unrecognized contributions of Chinese laborers during World War I. Rebranding herself as Juniper Song, June assumes an ambiguous ethnic identity and submits the stolen work as her own, rocketing her to the top of the bestseller list.
But success comes at a price, as June finds herself haunted by Athena’s shadow and threatened by emerging evidence that could expose her deceit. As she fights to maintain her stolen success, June must confront the lengths she’s willing to go to in order to keep what she believes she deserves.
“Yellowface” is a razor-sharp, timely, and immensely readable novel that addresses the erasure of Asian-American voices and history by Western white society. Dare to step into June’s shoes and discover the consequences of her actions—immerse yourself in this masterfully crafted story and uncover the truth that lies between the lines.
