"[A] quotidian-surreal craft-master." New York Magazine
In spare, evocative prose, SNOW HUNTERS traces the extraordinary journey of Yohan, a 25-year-old North Korean POW refugee who defects from his country at the end of the Korean War, leaving his friends and family behind to seek a new life in a port town on the coast of Brazil. In SNOW HUNTERS, Yoon proves love can dissolve loneliness; that hope can wipe away despair; and that a man who lost a country can find a new home. This is a heartrending story of second chances, told with unerring elegance and absolute tenderness.
