Can love dissolve loneliness? Can hope wash away despair? After the Korean War, Yohan has defected from his country, leaving his friends and family behind to start a new life on the coast of Brazil. In the ensuing years, he tries to reach out to others but remains traumatized by his past. A beautiful meditation on the solitary life, Paul Yoon has written a beautifully evocative novel.
