The hive and the honey : stories / Paul Yoon.

Yoon, Paul, (author.).


"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. A samurai escorts an orphan to his countrymen in the Edo Period. A formerly incarcerated man starts a new life in a small town in upstate New York and attempts to build a family. How does a North Korean defector connect with the child she once left behind? What are the traumas that haunt a Korean settlement in Far East Russia? The Hive and the Honey... portrays the vastness and complexity of diasporic communities, with each story bringing to light the knotty inheritances of their characters. " -- Provided by publisher.
