A Ms. Most Anticipated Book of the Year

Readers are gifted a funny, insightful, and beautifully written collection of essays . . . A must for your bookshelf . . . Incisive and exciting. --Sarah Neilson, Shondaland

Perfect for fans of the podcast Armchair Expert and the Netflix show Never Have I Ever . . . You've Changed is a portrait of someone who is mostly unapologetically--though sometimes mildly apologetically--herself . . . There should be way more books by relatable people who describe themselves as 'pretty average, ' and who celebrate 'fluff, ' but who don't shy away from heavy topics--and Pyae Moe Thet War does just that. --Robyn Smith, Bust

Thought-provoking, poignant, and a delight to read . . . A refreshingly honest, original exploration of personal identity. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In this arresting debut, War reflects on her dual lives spent in the U.S. and Myanmar to cleverly explore notions of home and identity . . . Intoxicating. --Publishers Weekly

"This book was a joy to read. Bracing, heartfelt, and frequently laugh-out-loud funny, Pyae Moe Thet War considers the complexities of migration, belonging, and what it means to love in a debut that is as refreshing as it is welcoming. I can't wait to read more from this wonderful writer." --Nicole Chung, author of All You Can Ever Know

"Reading You've Changed is like staying up all night with a new friend, swapping stories over a take-out container of fried rice. I was charmed by Pyae Moe Thet War's voice, at turns vulnerable, self-deprecating, and always humorous, and by her thoughtful exploration of the liminal space in which her multitude of identities--Myanmar, woman, feminist, writer--reside." --Larissa Pham, author of Pop Song

You've Changed is an inviting work by a debut author whose voice flexes its skill across different terrains of living and being. Pyae Moe Thet War meditates and grapples with identity as it relates to migration, Western assimilation, and intergenerational expectations--a fine book from a severely underrepresented voice in the world of arts and letters. I hope this work leaves the door open for other Myanmar writers. --Morgan Jerkins, author of Caul Baby
