Jade Chang talks to Paul Tam about her bestselling debut novel The Wangs vs. the World, a rags-to-riches-to-rags story about an unconventional family of Chinese immigrants. When Charles Wang’s cosmetics empire falls prey to the 2008 financial crash, the Bel Air lives (and trust funds) of his three Americanized children are thrown into turmoil. Described as “head-spinning fun” (Kirkus Reviews) and “richly entertaining” (Guardian), The Wangs tells a different kind of immigrant story, full of humour and heart, “about immigrants who never question their place in America.” Buckle up for a hilarious road trip!
