“An amazing book! Written in an exquisite style- eloquent, expressive, clear and honest. I finished reading it in two days (a record for me!) and intend to read it again to discover the layers beneath.” ​

Hardcover Edition

Author Jinsoo Lim's debut novel, The Magical Powers of Jin Tae Sohn is a distressing subversion of immigrant narratives. It portrays the burden of living with incessant fear and dread, and the disturbing knowledge that comes from previously buried memories. These stories depict a fragmented sense of identity forged by violence, betrayal, and shame, and the uncanny ability to survive, and hopefully, to redeem.
