Praise

"Yoon's stories are introspective and tender while also painting with bold strokes the details of the lives of the invisible." (starred review) 02/02/2009

"Yoon's prose is spare and beautiful. He can describe the sea more ways than seem possible without losing freshness, and his characters' world is often quietly dazzling." - Joan Silber 04/26/2009
