review Home Remedies 103 summary ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Xuan Juliana Wang characters Home Remedies Inese youth on a uest for every kind of freedomFrom a crowded apartment on Mott Street where an immigrant family raises its first real Americans to a pair of divers at the Beijing Olympics poised at the edge of success and self d I m usually not a huge fan of short story collections mainly because I don t like the incomplete nature of short stories and the feeling I always get that I m being left hanging One of the things I detest most when I m reading is to get deep into a story and its characters only to have it end abruptly with no logical conclusion to speak of the ones that annoy me the most are those that feel like the author stopped in the middle of a thought and the writing all of a sudden drops off these are also the ones that always make me think I am missing pages somewhere and perhaps I got a defective copy of the book I guess you can say that I like my stories with a beginning a middle section and an ending with characters that I can watch grow and develop over time and maybe even become invested in which is hard to do with short stories where the reader is often only offered a snippet of a character s story what s worse is that we are usually thrown in somewhere in the middle of the story which means that it will likely take effort to read and understand the nuances and significance behind each storyGiven the above I was really surprised that I enjoyed Xuan Juliana Wang s debut short story collection Home Remedies as much as I did This collection is billed as centering on the Chinese millennial experience and while I m not a millennial I found that I was still able to relate to some aspect of each story Separated into 3 sections entitled Family Love and Time and Space the 12 stories in this collection covered universally relatable themes yet still managed to hone in perfectly on the cultural aspects of what it means to be Chinese in today s society As a Chinese American who has lived in the US practically my entire life I found the stories about the difficulties of Chinese immigrant youth having to straddle two worlds and never being fully accepted into either one especially relatable as it reminded me of many of the same struggles I had encountered back in my youth This collection actually covered a lot of ground and each story managed to be deeply nuanced despite the brevity that is usually expected with short stories I was surprised by the depth of the stories in this collection and the cultural as well as emotional resonance that they evoked in me as I said earlier it s usually difficult for me to get into short stories but I dove into this set full force and found myself completely immersed With that said though I also found it frustrating that the journey with each character was so brief with each story dropping off at what I felt was a significant moment I wanted each story to be complete wanted to know what would happen to these characters One of the things that set this collection of short stories apart from others is the variety as each story had a distinctive voice not a single one the same yet the feelings and emotions the stories explored were often commonly felt ones I also loved the writing which was at times lyrical at times straightforward depending on the story but was always completely engaging This is an exuisite collection one that I absolutely recommend If you re the type who generally only reads a limited number of short story collections for me it s due to a preference for the fully fleshed out stories and characters that are often only found in novels this is definitely one that needs to be included on your list Personally I can t wait to see what Xuan Juliana Wang has in store for us nextLastly here are a few of my favorites from this collection Mott Street in July about the transformation a Chinese family undergoes after immigrating to the United States the opportunities they gain but also the sacrifices they have to make As an immigrant myself this was the story I was able to relate to the most For Our Children and For Ourselves about a rich successful business woman arranging a marriage for her special needs daughter and the implications of that decision for all involved This one was the most heartbreaking story for me not necessarily because of how the story evolved but the feelings evoked from what was not said feelings that felt so familiar to me Fuerdai to the Max about second generation Chinese rich kids who are used to not being held accountable for their actions and what happens when that day of reckoning finally arrives This was an interesting one and I loved the angle the author took in relaying the events as they unfolded Home Remedies for Non Life Threatening Ailments presented as anecdotal advice for various ailments such as boredom self doubt bilingual heartache family pressure etc this one was both whimsical and original which I absolutely loved Vaulting the Sea a coming of age story about two synchronized divers on the verge of finding success at the Olympics This was a beautifully rendered story that I felt was the most real in the way it dealt with the characters emotions and relationships Algorithmic Problem Solving for Father Daughter Relationships about a father who uses euations and algorithms to explain his relationship with his daughter this was a fun one that depicts what happens when cultures clash within a family The Strawberry Years about a young man named Yang who is tasked with looking after a famous actress only to have her refuse to leave and end up overtaking his life This one captured the ubiuitous influence of social media perfectly which I found absolutely fascinating Echo of the Moment about a Chinese American girl living in Paris who finds herself in possession of an entire wardrobe of designer clothes belonging to a young model who had committed suicide a few days earlier The supernatural slant to this story made for some compelling reading Received ARC from Hogarth via Edelweiss

review Home Remedies 103 summary ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Xuan Juliana Wang characters Home Remedies Iscovery Wang’s unforgettable characters – with their unusual careers unconventional sex lives and fantastical technologies – share the bold hope that no matter where they’ve come from their lives too can be extraordinary One of my favorite sensations as a reader is stumbling across something perfect and unexpected something you weren t looking for and never knew you needed and you come away feeling richer for the experience Home Remedies does that repeatedly with each strange little slice of life feeling like a concentrated burst of observation a window into a truly strange stranger s head rendering a consistently alien experience somehow relatable while your brain marinates in a stew of subtle details that feel right even when you re not entirely sure what they all meanWhat we have here in simple terms is a collection of short stories written by a Chinese American author We consistently see tales of emigration families children students hustlers and others leaving China to restart their lives in the United States and what that feels like for all involved We also see China from a perspective few Americans could conjure on their own the kind of perspective born from some kind of lived experience whether first hand or absorbed from family and friends I m not entirely sure but it certainly feels real as you read As I dug deeper into the book I felt the weight of Chinese culture looming in the background in ways I hadn t expected and ways I can t really articulate in a short reviewI realize as I read all that back it sounds like I m describing a travelogue but Home Remedies isn t that at all It s a swirl of characters built out of bundled observations little bursts of thought and feeling all perfectly rendered somehow cohering into a series of tiny stories but stories built on the backs of human sized lives if that makes sense Xuan Juliana Wang experiments with form several times throughout the book sometimes employing impressionistic lists but just as often keeping things straightforward on the structural front only to swerve into magical realism to keep us on our toes It s a cop out to point to Raymond Carver when describing good short fiction but I think there s a reasonable parallel here to the extent Wang is able to do so much with so little to leave only a few threads on the page but lace those threads with mystiue heart detachment longing unease humor millennial ennui ie the stuff of life Her characters are traced in electric prose but carved in relief silhouettes painted on the page with just enough detail just enough narrative to make them indelible and intoxicating relatable but ultimately unknowable It s a hell of a trick and no accident Wang is confident subtle and remarkably consistent toying with expectations cleanly sidestepping cliches all that good stuffIf I have a criticism it s that I wish this book were longer I couldn t put it down and I probably read it faster than I should have Before I knew it the end was upon me and I was bummed left yearning and bereft Home Remedies gets my highest recommendation for short fiction run don t walk do the right thing yadda yadda
