ShelterBook - 2016
In the tradition of "Affliction" and "The House of Sand and Fog," this is a masterfully crafted debut novel that asks what it means to provide for one's family. When an act of violence leaves Kyung Cho's parents, Jin and Mae, unable to live on their own, the dynamic suddenly changes, and he decides to take them in. As the safe distance between them collapses, Kyung is forced to question what it means to be a good husband, father, and son, while the life he knew begins to crumble and his own anger demands to be released.
