RF Kuang & Roxane Gay

Both award-winning and bestselling authors R.F. Kuang (Babel, The Poppy War) and Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist, Hunger) write probing social commentary on the intersections of race and gender. R.F. Kuang’s new novel Yellowface might be fictional, but its trenchantly comic depiction of racism and cultural appropriation in literature and publishing—and the ways online discourse responds—feel acutely real. They join in conversation to discuss Kuang’s subversive and satirical new novel, in all its uneasy timeliness.
