We, Day by Day
About the Book
Whether suturing NoHae Park and Pablo Neruda together in a cinematic sweep or refusing the global economy's demands to rush and sign over one's literary life, Jin's portraiture is time illuminated by an intelligence committed to "how strange questions, fountains of brilliant blood, gush unceasingly in the boundless desert of answers."
