'The funniest, most poignant novel of the year' - VogueFor fans of Yellowface by Rebecca F Kuang, Disorientation is an uproarious and big-hearted satire - alive with sharp edges, immense warmth, and a cast of unforgettable characters - that asks: who gets to tell our stories? Ingrid Yang is desperate to finish her PhD dissertation on the much-lauded poet Xiao-Wen Chou and never read about 'Chinese-y' things again, when she accidentally stumbles upon a strange note in the Chou archives that she thinks may be her ticket out of academic hell. But Ingrid has no idea that the note will lead to an explosive secret, upending her entire life and the lives of those around her. Her clumsy exploits to discover the truth set off a rollercoaster of mishaps and misadventures, from campus protests and over-the-counter drug hallucinations, to book burnings and a movement that stinks of Yellow Peril propaganda.

In the aftermath, she'll have to question everything, from her relationship with her fiance to the kind of person she dares to be.
