Snow Hunters (Hb)

A haunting literary debut of a Korean POW learning to adapt to a new life in Brazil from the novelist "New York Magazine" calls a "quotidian-surreal craft-master." "Snow Hunters" traces the extraordinary journey of Yohan, who defects from his country at the end of the Korean War, leaving his friends and family behind to seek a new life on the coast of Brazil. Throughout his years there, four people slip in and out of his life: Kiyoshi, the Japanese tailor for whom he works; Peixe, the groundskeeper at the town church; and two vagrant children named Santi and Bia. Yohan longs to connect with these people, but to do so he must let go of his traumatic past. In "Snow Hunters," Yoon proves that love can dissolve loneliness, that hope can wash away despair, and that a man who has lost a country can find a new home. This is a heartrending story of second chances, told with unerring elegance and tenderness. *This book may have remainder mark*
