Description

A boy searches for his father, a prison guard on Sakhalin Island. In Barcelona, a woman is tasked with spying on a prizefighter who may or may not be her estranged son. In the Edo Period, a samurai escorts an orphan to his countrymen.

In upstate New York, a formerly incarcerated man starts a new life in a small town and attempts to build a family. From award-winning author Paul Yoon, The Hive and the Honey is a bold and indelible collection that portrays the vastness and complexity of diasporic communities, with each story bringing to light the knotty inheritances of their characters. How does a North Korean defector connect with the child she once left behind? What are the traumas that haunt a Korean settlement in the far east of Russia? A collection laced with beauty and cruelty, The Hive and the Honey is the work of an author writing at the very height of his powers.
