ESMÉ WEIJUN WANG

Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - BITCH LIST - —LISA FACTORA-BORCHERS

You need to know about nov­el­ist and es­say­ist Esmé Weijun Wang, one of the few folks who writes about life at the in­ter­sec­tion of late-stage Lyme dis­ease and schizoaf­fec­tive dis­or­der. Among her other ac­co­lades and no­ble la­bels, Wang was named one of the Best of Young Amer­i­can Novelists this year by Granta mag­a­zine. Her forth­com­ing col­lec­tion of es­says, The Col­lected Schizophre­nias, for which she won the Gray­wolf Nonfiction Prize, will be pub­lished in 2018. In ad­di­tion to Wang’s longer work, it’s also worth be­gin­ning your day with Wang’s morn­ing tweets (@es­me­wang). They some­how com­bine po­etry, good wishes, and gran­u­lar truths of what it means to sur­vive the world. Try them with cof­fee. You won’t re­gret it.
