Product description

Book Description

A dazzling debut novel about a young woman's dark obsession with privilege, and how far she'll go to get it - from prizewinning Chinese American author Susie Yang --This text refers to the paperback edition.


Class, race and coming-of-age lock horns in this original, funny, clever novel. Totally addictive, twisting and twisted: Ivy Lin will get under your skin -- Erin Kelly, author of HE SAID/SHE SAID

Chock-full of compelling, exciting ideas -- Lynn Steger Strong ― New York Times

If the path of true love never runs smoothly, in White Ivy it is a rickety old bridge with missing steps thousands of feet over a dusty canyon. Yang is excellent at pacing and surprises . . . This is Austen mixed with the hyperreal sharpness of Donna Tartt -- Sarah Gilmartin ― Irish Times

Compulsively readable, dark and toxic, with grim flashes of humour, White Ivy takes a hold of you and doesn't let go. A book I won't forget in a hurry -- Harriet Tyce, author of BLOOD ORANGE

The genius of White Ivy is that each plot point of the romance is fulfilled but also undercut by a traumatic pratfall, described in language as bright and scarring as a wound -- Noah Berlatsky ― Los Angeles Times

Wonderfully immersive, gritty and authentic, and I was totally gripped by Ivy's tenacious, raw, flawed desires and logic... Dark and real, Ivy's story will most definitely stay with me -- Karen Hamilton, author of THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND

Frank, propulsive, clever; a deftly handled and funny 21st-century comedy of manners that so interestingly and compellingly explores the symbiosis of cultural and personal history with identity. One of my favourite novels of the yearSusannah Dickey, author of TENNIS LESSONS

A fascinating look at the Chinese-American immigrant experience with an unforgettable heroine at its centreRed Magazine

A gripping novel that's thought-provoking, glamorous and twisty all at once . . . Yang deftly explores the Chinese-American immigrant experience while maintaining the addictive pace and glossy feel of a HBO drama - and the manipulative, determined Ivy Lin makes a fascinating fictional antiheroine. Initially a coming-of-age story about a teenager struggling to find her place in the world, White Ivy develops into a dread-soaked romance that gradually builds into a full-blown psychological thriller. I haven't read a book this bingeable in months -- Moya Crockett ― Stylist

Exquisitely written and totally irresistible, White Ivy is an evocative page-turner with a cast of searingly vivid characters and a deeply chilling heart. An outstanding debut that will make your pulse race - I loved every single word -- Anna Downes, author of THE SAFE PLACE

It's a testament to Susie Yang's skill that she can explore and upend our ideas of class, race, family, and identity while moving us through a plot that twists in such wonderful ways. But none of that would matter nearly as much if not for the truly unforgettable narrator, Ivy, who is so hypnotic, the way her voice feels both wild and controlled. She ran right through me." -- Kevin Wilson, New York Times-bestselling author of NOTHING TO SEE HERE and THE FAMILY FANG

Sordid and funSunday Telegraph 'Novel of the Week'

White Ivy is magic and a necessary corrective both to the stereotypes and the pieties that too easily characterize the immigrant experience. Most pleasing of all is the story of Ivy Lin, a daring young woman in search of herself, and not soon to be forgotten. -- Joshua Ferris, author of THEN WE CAME TO THE END

White Ivy is dark and delicious. Ivy Lin eviscerates the model minority stereotype with a smile on her lips and a boot on your neck. Cancel your weekend plans, because you won't be able to take your eyes off Ivy Lin -- Lucy Tan, author of WHAT WE WERE PROMISED

Elegant and terrifying, steely and sparkling, White Ivy is a propulsive story told with the satisfying simplicity of a classic -- Rebecca Dinerstein Knight, author of HEX

Bold, daring, and sexy, White Ivy is the immigrant story we've been dying to hear. Rather than submit to love, Ivy seeks it out, sinks her teeth into it, and doesn't let go. A stunning debut -- Neel Patel, author of IF YOU SEE ME, DON'T SAY HI

A truly addictive readGlamour's Best Books of 2020

Susie Yang delves into class warfare and deceit in the season's biggest debutEntertainment Weekly

Yang's stunning debut novel is a riveting bildungsroman Oprah Magazine

The modern story of clashing cultures and classes already reads like Crazy Rich Asians meets Donna Tartt's The Secret History meets Paul's Case, Willa Cather's classic story of a desperate middle-class climb. But White Ivy, the propulsive debut novel by Susie Yang, is more than plot twists and love triangles. It's also an astute chronicle of cultures, gender dynamics and the complicated business of self-creation in AmericaSan Francisco Chronicle

A highly entertaining, well-plotted character study about a young woman whose obsession with the shallow signifiers of success gets her in too deep ― Washington Post
