Vanessa Hua recommends
Shanghailanders (2024)
Juli Min
"Lyrical and haunting, Shanghailanders explores the enduring mysteries of family. With its inventive structure - the years spooling in reverse, told through rotating perspectives - Juli Min movingly portrays the Yangs and their many seasons of love and loss in a metropolis that perpetually rises, falls, and emerges from the ashes. An extraordinary debut."
The Turtle House (2024)
Amanda Churchill
"Sweeping yet intimate, Amanda Churchill's Turtle House spans cultures and continents. Minnie and her granddaughter Lia are unforgettable protagonists, whose grit and grace will inspire you. Together, they find a way through in this gripping debut."
River East, River West (2024)
Aube Rey Lescure
"Aube Rey Lescure's portrayal of the glitter and grit of China's tumultuous economic rise is by turns luminous and searing. A haunting debut."
