Book Signing & Talk • sung yim
Join us as we welcome sung yim to Ernest & Hadley Books! They will sign and discuss their new book: What About the Rest of Your Life, a memoir that was named a 2018 Lambda Literary Award Finalist for Transgender Nonfiction. Signing starts at 4:30 pm, reading and discussion at 5:00 pm.
In their soaring and urgent debut memoir, sung captures a sleepy sad slice of Americana recognizable to anyone who’s driven past a strip mall at midnight. Equal parts grim and buoyant, here is an intimate portrait of trauma, family, addiction, and body. What About the Rest of Your Life exposes the harrowing terrain where there is no boundary between love and abuse. Unapologetically raw, sung reinvents the recovery narrative through an immigrant's lens.
sung is a writer and interdisciplinary artist from Korea. Their essays and poems have appeared in The James Franco Review, Contrary, Kweli, Crab Fat Magazine, and in a chapbook from Ghost City Press.
