After Kyung’s parents survive an unspeakable attack, everyone, especially his wife, Gillian, thinks he should offer them unwavering support. But they don’t know about Kyung’s traumatic childhood, which he has, until now, avoided remembering by spending as little time with his folks as possible. Yun makes the tension inside Kyung visceral and unbearable as the complex knot of anger and pity he wrestles with hardens into a confused rage. With its major events occurring at the book’s beginning and end, the middle is left as a sort of extended character study, where Yun skillfully makes Kyung’s unraveling feel fast-paced and urgent. B+
