Book Launch: Esther Yi presents Y/N In conversation with Eugene Lim

March 21 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Greenlight is delighted to launch the much-anticipated first novel by Esther Yi, Y/N, with a live and in-person reading, discussion, and celebration of Yi’s literary debut about the universal longing for transcendence and the tragic struggle to assert one’s singular story amidst the amnesiac effects of globalization. The novel concerns a Korean American woman living in Berlin whose obsession with a K-pop idol sends her to Seoul on a journey of literary self-destruction. Sharp and humorously perverse, this provocative debut announces Yi as an audacious new talent. Author and publisher Eugene Lim (Search History) joins Yi in conversation at our Fort Greene store for an evening revealing the unexpected places desire can lead us, if only we are willing to lose ourselves.
