Charles Yu presents Interior Chinatown
In conversation with Charlie Jane Anders
Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, comes to Greenlight (virtually!) to present the paperback edition of his National Book Award winning novel Interior Chinatown. Willis Wu doesn’t perceive himself as the protagonist in his own life: he’s merely Generic Asian Man, always relegated to a prop. After stumbling into the spotlight, Willis finds himself launched into a wider world than he’s ever known, discovering not only the secret history of Chinatown, but the buried legacy of his own family. Infinitely inventive and deeply personal, exploring the themes of pop culture, assimilation, and immigration—Interior Chinatown is Yu’s most moving, daring, and masterful novel yet. Charlie Jane Anders, acclaimed author of All the Birds in the Sky and the forthcoming Victories Greater Than Death, joins Yu in conversation at this incredible virtual book talk!
