Book Launch: Paul Yoon presents Snow Hunters
(A Greenlight First Editions Club Selection)
In Snow Hunters, the elegant, haunting, and highly anticipated debut novel from 5 Under 35 National Book Foundation honoree Paul Yoon, a North Korean war refugee confronts the wreckage of his past. With spare, evocative prose, Yoon traces the extraordinary journey of Yohan, who defects from his country at the end of the war, leaving his friends and family behind to seek a new life in a port town on the coast of Brazil. Ann Patchett writes of the book, “Behind every subtle gesture, this novel shimmers with a deep and complex history. Snow Hunters is a beautiful and moving meditation on a solitary life.” Greenlight is proud to present Yoon’s book as the August selection for our First Editions Club, and to host his first bookstore reading event for Snow Hunters.
