I'm Waiting for You by Kim Bo-young

Staff Pick

I’m Waiting for You treats English-speaking audiences to four remarkable short works of fiction by one of South Korea’s most established sci-fi writers. The collection's first set of linked stories follows an engaged couple as they travel through space and time, battling setbacks in order to be reunited and finally get married. The tale is as epic as it is romantic, with a cinematic quality that makes it easy to imagine on a big screen. In the second set, Kim engages the genre's philosophical side to explore a world where god-like beings called “prophets” argue the merits of individuality vs Oneness with all others. Here, especially, readers will appreciate the unflagging love of humanity that shines through all Kim's work.
