FINALIST FOR THE 2019 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR FICTION

'“Zing will go certain taut strings in your chest. . . . Choi builds her novel carefully, but it is packed with wild moments of grace and fear and abandon. . . . a phosphorescent examination of sexual consent.” 
—Dwight Garner, The New York Times

”Many novels teach their readers how to read them; the reader of this one must learn something else—to stay with the not-knowing long enough to find the truth.”
—Joanna Biggs, The New Yorker

Mind-bending. . . . It flexes its own meta-existence—as a novel about the manipulation inherent in any kind of narrative—brilliantly.” 
—Hillary Kelly, New York Magazine

Named a most anticipated book of 2019 by Buzzfeed, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Electric Literature, The Millions, PopSugarThe Philadelphia Inquirer, PW, Lit Hub, Bustle, and The Huffington Post
