Sung Yim with Frances S. Lee
Equal parts grim and buoyant, here is an intimate portrait of trauma, family, addiction, and body--and it was Elissa Washuta who brought this extraordinary book to our attention. What About the Rest of Your Life (Perfect Day Press), by Sung Yim, “exposes the harrowing terrain where there is no boundary between love and abuse (and) reinvents the recovery narrative through an immigrant's lens.”
Sung Yim is a bilingual South Korean immigrant living in Illinois. Their essays and poems have appeared in The James Franco Review, Contrary, Kweli, Crab Fat Magazine, and in a chapbook from Ghost City Press. Tonight Sung Yim appears in conversation with multidisciplinary creative scholar, Frances S. Lee, who is a graduate student in Cultural Studies at the University of Washington, Bothell.
