After the stratospheric success of her dark academic fantasy novel Babel, R F Kuang has elegantly pivoted genre to literary thriller. June, an aspiring author, steals her dead friend’s manuscript and publishes it to rave acclaim. When threatened with exposure, June will go to any length to keep her secret. Join the New York Times bestselling author as she discusses Yellowface, a rollicking satire that skewers the publishing industry, Twitter discourse, and co opted identity politics. In conversation with Nyla Ahmad.
