"Young is an American Born Chinese (ABC) growing up in Queens and has been told by his beloved Su Su (uncle) that one has only seven great loves in a lifetime. Young's childhood is marked by an obsessive love of comics, music, and movies. . . as well as a parade of school-yard crushes, tantalizing pen-pal exchanges, and a lasting infatuation with Winona Ryder. But, at the end of 1995, when Young is a sophomore at NYU, he meets Erena-brilliant, charismatic, quick-witted, and crassly funny. They fall in love and, for Young, it feels so real that he's thrilled and terrified that it could be his lasting love number seven. Interspersed through Young and Erena's story are flashbacks to various points in the 80s and early 90s where we meet Young's great loves one through five. Written with the pop culture fluency of High Fidelity, the tender family drama of Everything Everywhere All at Once, the literary scope of Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and with a bombastically sweet style all his own, Abraham Chang's 888 Love and the Divine Burden of Numbers is a monumental debut that will be read for years to come"--… (more)

No rating. Stopped at 10%. I found it irritatingly cutesy. It has all the things I should love, but I don't.
