"Jade Chang is unendingly clever in her generous debut novel."
"A fresh Little Miss Sunshine."
"Jade Chang's firecracker of a debut knowingly and refreshingly breaks every unwritten rule of the Asian-American family saga, making for a blistering, high-energy read that's worthy of its pre-publication hype."
"[The Wangs] is unrelentingly fun, but it's also raw and profane—a story of fierce pride, fierce anger, and even fiercer love."
"[A] jam-packed, high-energy debut . . . . Head-spinning fun."
"One of the best debut novels of 2016."
"Fresh, energetic, and completely hilarious, The Wangs vs. the World is my favorite debut of the year."
—Jami Attenberg, author of Saint Mazie and The Middlesteins
"Funny, brash, honest, full of wit and heart and smarts. This is a novel I wish I could write, have been dying to read, and hope everyone else reads, too."
—Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe and Sorry Please Thank You
"Jade Chang’s debut novel is a heartbreaking, hilarious, and honest American epic: a road trip that’s an ultimate escape from our parents’ American dream, toward an unknown destination that’s both more vulnerable and hopeful."
—J. Ryan Stradal, author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest
"One of the most thrilling, skilfully wrought novels I've read in ages. I love a road trip adventure, and this is a fine take on the form—a rollicking rambunctious ride with a crew of unforgettable characters, shot through with beautiful analyses of love. The Wangs were so real to me that I keep expecting them to turn up at my door. I'll be ready with my bags if they do."
—Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals
