Yellowface is a thriller full of irony and cynicism about the publishing and, overall, the literary world. The way we follow June as our main character, with her condescension, her racism and her (white) gaze through a success that doesn't belong to her, makes everything deeper and more nuanced about the critics that are being made against literary agencies, publishing house and systemic racism.
Though the middle part was maybe a bit too long and a bit too dramatic for me, I was not once bored, just waiting to know how all of this will unfold and explose. Tension is everywhere, well dosed and extraordinary well written.
