E. J. Koh
The Elliott Bay Book Company
1521 Tenth Avenue
Seattle, WA 98122
When Eun Ji Koh was 15, her parents moved back to South Korea for work, leaving her bewildered and heartbroken. Her mother wrote her letters, but it was "a one-way correspondence". It wasn't until she found the letters again as an adult that Koh fully realized the depth of her mother's love for her and the history behind her family's sacrifice. "The Magical Language of Others is a beautifully crafted saga, and a testament to how the most complicated, often elusive truths and inheritances can shape us and reverberate across generations.”  Nicole Chung, All You Can Ever Know. We are delighted to be hosting the launch event for this beautifully bittersweet masterpiece! A Seattleite, E.J. Koh is the author of A Lesser Love, which won the Pleiades Editors Prize in 2017. She has been featured in Poetry Society of America, The Seattle Channel, and Bumbershoot Arts and Music Festival and is completing her PhD at the University of Washington for English Language and Literature. Can't make it to the event, but still want a signed book? No problem! When you order your copy, just write "signed" in the Order Comments field or "personalized" and the name you want it signed to. If it's a gift, you can also write "gift" and we'll mail you a certificate to give to the lucky recipient to act as a placeholder! Books will be shipped following our event on January 7, 2020.
