Soon Wiley on love, loss, belonging, and 'When We Fell Apart'
Balancing perfectly on the line that divides literary work from suspenseful drama, Soon Wiley’s When We Fell Apart skillfully inhabits both genres. The story is told through alternating perspectives of two characters: Min, a young Korean American man, and his Korean girlfriend, Yu-jin. Min’s search for answers about Yu-jin’s mysterious death becomes a search for belonging. I recently spoke with Soon Wiley about his debut novel, When We Fell Apart. Here’s our conversation.
When We Fell Apart by Soon Wiley was published by Dutton.
