Book Overview

The breathtaking debut of an important new voice--centered on a constellation of Korean American families

To encounter these achingly truthful, beautiful stories of newcomer Americans is like gazing up at the starry vault of a perfect night sky; it's immediately dazzling and impressive, and yet the closer and deeper you look, the more you appreciate the sheer countless brilliance. --Chang-rae Lee, author of My Year Abroad

A long-married couple is forced to confront their friend's painful past when a church revival comes to a nearby town . A woman in an arranged marriage struggles to connect with the son she hid from her husband for years . A well-meaning sister unwittingly reunites an abuser with his victims.

Through an indelible array of lives, Yoon Choi explores where first and second generations either clash or find common ground, where meaning falls in the cracks between languages, where relationships bend under the weight of tenderness and disappointment, where displacement turns to heartbreak.

Skinship is suffused with a profound understanding of humanity and offers a searing look at who the people we love truly are.
