About the Author

Kathy Wang grew up in Northern California and holds degrees from UC Berkeley and Harvard Business School. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and two children.


"Like John le Carré filtered through Tom Wolfe, Impostor Syndrome encapsulates our Facebook anxieties perfectly." -- The Millions

"A skilled satirist of the Northern California dream." -- Harper's Bazaar

"Satisfying...Wang sets the story in the overheated Silicon Valley and sharpens her teeth on its self-mythologizing and excesses." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"A propulsive spy thriller and a sharp take on the illusion of the American Dream." -- People

"Excellent ... Wang deftly explores some of the broader cultural issues she broached in Family Trust as well -- how women and BIPOC are treated in corporate America, and who has access to the American dream." -- Buzzfeed

"Electrifying. ... You'll be glued to the pages the entire time." -- The Skimm

"[Wang] restyles Silicon Valley's famed 'toxicity' around gender and race into actual poison and translates workplace politics into a caper of geopolitical consequence. Impostor Syndrome, like its two heroines, wears its greatness lightly." -- New Republic

"A smart page-turner." -- Oprah Daily

"The Silicon Valley spy novel we've all been waiting for, with a side order of biting satire and furious feminism." -- CrimeReads

"Both an enticing thriller about two women playing a high-powered game of cat-and-mouse and a searing satire about the world of big tech companies." -- Popsugar

"Impostor Syndrome is a trenchant critique of our dependence on social media - and a great page-turner." -- Tahmima Anam, author of The Startup Wife

"A wickedly convincing deep-dive into the dark underbelly of Silicon Valley." -- Ruth Ware
