OPRAH.COM BOOK OF THE WEEK DAILY BEAST HOT READ NEW YORKER BOOK TO WATCH OUT FOR "Utterly unique." -Los Angeles Times "Exquisite...hits on all cylinders and roars to life...all the more powerful for its brevity." -New York Times Book Review "The finest of fables...a small but radiant star in the current literary firmament." -Dallas Morning News "Though the book is about the consequences of war, the ideas at work in SNOW HUNTERS brilliantly translate to the broader experience of life." -NPR "[A] quotidian-surreal craft-master." -New York Magazine Yoon's highly anticipated debut novel SNOW HUNTERS promises to be even more beloved than the collection of stories that introduced him to the literary world. SNOW HUNTERS traces extraordinary journey of Yohan, who defects from his country at the end of the Korean War, leaving his friends and family behind to seek a new life on the coast of Brazil. Throughout his years there, four people slip in and out of his life: Kiyoshi, the Japanese tailor for whom he works; Peixe, the groundskeeper at the town church; and two vagrant children named Santi and Bia. Yohan longs to connect with these people, but to do so he must let go of his traumatic past. In SNOW HUNTERS, Yoon proves that love can dissolve loneliness, that hope can wash away despair, and that a man who has lost a country can find a new home. This is a heartrending story of second chances, told with unerring elegance and tenderness.
