“This slim volume, in near poetry, paints the unlikely portrait of a poor North Korean prisoner of war who, almost by hazard, begins a new life in a low-key port city in Brazil rather than returning home. Taken in by a kindly Japanese tailor, Yohan learns the trade, learns the language and slowly becomes a member of this odd foreign family of two. A touching portrayal of immigrant life, isolation, and the search for human connections in a strange new world.”
— DarwinEllis, Books On The Common, Ridgefield, CT

Description


It is 1954 and the story traces the extraordinary journey of Yohan, who defects from his country at the end of the Korean War, leaving his friends and family behind to seek a new life on the coast of Brazil. Throughout his years there, four people slip in and out of his life: Kiyoshi, the Japanese tailor for whom he works; Peixe, the groundskeeper at the town church; and two vagrant children named Santi and Bia. Yohan longs to connect with these people, but to do so he must let go of his traumatic past.
