Centered on a community of immigrants precariously balanced on the edge of poverty in 1990s New York City, the stories that make up Sour Heart examine the ways that family and history can weigh us down, but also lift us up. The New Yorker called this collection “obscene, beautiful, moving” – join Jenny Zhang at this in-conversation and find out why.

Berpusat pada sebuah komunitas para imigran yang secara seimbang berada dalam ujung kemiskinan Kota New York pada tahun 1990-an, cerita-cerita yang menyusun Sour Heart meneliti cara-cara bahwa keluarga dan sejarah dapat membebani kita, tetapi juga mengangkat kita. The New Yorker menyebut kumpulan cerita ini “menarik, indah, dan menggerakkan” – bergabunglah dengan Jenny Zhang pada percakapan mendalam ini dan temukan alasannya.
