Product Description

“May in America” is the newest novel from acclaimed Chinese-American author, Annie Wang. May, one of the new generations of Chinese super-rich kids, has outgrown Beijing and has come to California for an exciting life. She meets two American men: a Jewish-American Harvard-educated professor named Leaf; and Mentor, a Silicon Valley self-made billionaire. As her relationships with Leaf and Mentor progress, May’s past traumas in patriarchal China are revealed, while her cultural naiveté leads to divergent interpretations of trust, personal boundaries, respect, fetishism, and sexual deviancy. May’s life descends into a mad triangle of deception. Desperate, hurting, disconnected and suffering from the feeling of being emotionally dead and alone, May must find the strength to survive. “May in America” reveals the universally evocative themes of love and lust, darkness and light, innocence and cynicism, individuality and co-dependence, and, ultimately, loss and redemption. Annie Wang is the author of “Lili” and “The People’s Republic of Desire.” She lives in Houston, TX
