“Solitude City” Love in The Conium Review

“Solitude City” Love in The Conium Review

I don’t know how I missed this when it came out, but Susan Lynch at The Conium Review read the spring 2011 issue of The Kenyon Review and mentioned “Solitude City”:

Yune’s short story is enlightening: deft storytelling with a savvy of world markets, corporate gamesmanship and Korean culture.  Characters are smart and sharp and tender and funny – polysyndeton intentional – as is the dialogue, internal, external, digital, human. 

 

Wow. I’m thrilled to hear that the story connected on so many different levels. And I don’t think anyone’s ever used the phrase “polysyndeton intentional” to describe my writing. But (after looking it up), it makes perfect sense. The entire review, which also talks about Deema Shehabi, Andrew Hudgins, and Katharine Larson, can be found here.
