Reviews

The Prince of Mournful Thoughts and Other Stories is an extraordinary collection, and the title story alone is an astonishing feat. . . . The collection takes us in stories across the Korean diaspora, from ancient Korea to the Korean War to Korean Americans living in America in the recent past, the present, and even the future. [Caroline Kim] has a devastating sense of dramatic timing, a keen ear for dialogue, and experiments constantly, with structure, minimalism, science fiction, historical fiction, returning always with insight, intelligence, and an expansive sense of their characters' humanity, which in turn points us to our own. These characters will live in my head a long time." - Alexander Chee, author of How to Write an Autobiographical Novel, The Queen of the Night, and Edinburgh
