Summary
Snow Hunters traces the extraordinary journey of Yohan, who defects from his country at the end of the Korean War, leaving his friends and family behind to seek a new life on the coast of Brazil. Throughout his years there, four people slip in and out of his life: Kiyoshi, the Japanese tailor for whom he works; Peixe, the groundskeeper at the town church; and two vagrant children named Santi and Bia. Yohan longs to connect with these people, but to do so he must let go of his traumatic past
Summary
After being released from a prisoner-of-war camp at the end of the Korean War, 25-year-old North Korean Yohan decides to go to Brazil, since (you'll eventually learn) nothing and no one awaits him at home. In Brazil, Yohan's relationships are minimal and restrained (and haunted by his harrowing war experiences); it's only as time passes that Yohan starts to truly reach out to others. At only 192 pages despite themes of connection and the aftermath of war, the precisely worded <i>Snow Hunters</i> packs memorable literary heft. - Description by Shauna Griffin
