LIVE FROM CROWDCAST: Yoon Choi, ”SKINSHIP” w/ Steph Cha

Posted in literature, skylight books, book stores, books, fiction, novels, live on crowdcast by skylightbooks on December 20th, 2021

A long-married couple is forced to confront their friend's painful past when a church revival comes to a nearby town ... A woman in an arranged marriage struggles to connect with the son she hid from her husband for years ... A well-meaning sister unwittingly reunites an abuser with his victims.

Through an indelible array of lives, Yoon Choi explores where first and second generations either clash or find common ground, where meaning falls in the cracks between languages, where relationships bend under the weight of tenderness and disappointment, where displacement turns to heartbreak.

Skinship is suffused with a profound understanding of humanity and offers a searing look at who the people we love truly are.

Choi is joined in this Live Crowdcast episode by Steph Cha. The episode was recorded on September 1, 2021. You can watch the Zoom recording here.
