Wong recommends reading That Time I Loved You by Carrianne Leung.
"I'm currently reading Carrianne Leung's That Time I Loved You, and she's such a masterful storyteller and connoisseur of creating emotional depth on the page. I personally love that her stories feature complex Asian-Canadian characters in suburbia, which is what I'm fascinated with — how do you reconcile someone's exterior image with their very different and personal lives? Leung makes me want to try writing fiction."
