In a series of flashbulb-bright stories of young Chinese people as immigrants, as individuals, and as sons and daughters looking to define themselves outside of the experiences of their elders, Xuan Juliana Wang’s writing limns many identities: in one, a young artist becomes the unlikely star of a Chinese livestream, in another a competitive diver grapples with perfection and his emerging sexual feelings for his partner, and in yet another, an architect struggles to make a space that reflects her heritage, to build something lasting, but new. In electric, intuitive prose, ‘Home Remedies’ is a collection about the stick-and-give friction between cultures and generations, lovers and life-long friends.
