The Souls Of Yellow Folk: Essays

Cover of The Souls Of Yellow Folk:
by Wesley Yang

The National Magazine Award-winning writers debut collection of incisive, stylish essays on race and gender. One of the most acclaimed essayists of his generation, Wesley Yang writes about race and sex without the jargon, formulas, and polite lies that bore us all. His powerful debut, The Souls of Yellow Folk, does more than collect a decades worth of cult-reputation essays-it corrals new American herds of pickup artists, school shooters, mandarin zombies, and immigrant strivers, and exposes them to scrutiny, empathy, and polemical force.
