Abstract:

'Our unnamed narrator is three years into her post-grad studies in chemistry and nearly as long into her relationship with her devoted boyfriend, who has just proposed. But while his path forward seems straight, hers is 'like a gas particle moving around in space': her research is stagnating, and she's questioning whether she's lost her passion for her work altogether. The demands of her Chinese parents--who have always expected nothing short of excellence--don't help. Eventually, the pressure mounts so high that she must leave everything she thought she knew about her future, and herself, behind. And for the first time she's confronted with a question she won't find the answer to in a textbook: What do I really want? Over the next two years, this winningly flawed, disarmingly insightful heroine learns the formulas and equations for a different kind of chemistry--one in which the reactions can't be quantified, measured and analysed; one that can be studied only in the mysterious language of the heart. Weike Wang earned her undergraduate degree in chemistry and her doctorate in public health at Harvard University. She received her MFA from Boston University. She is a 2017 '5 Under 35' honouree of the National Book Foundation. She lives in New York.
