Black Fish: Memoir of a Bad Luck Girl
First he told her about the affair. Then he told her about the baby. Her life as she knew it was over. Not just another divorce memoir, BLACK FISH: MEMOIR OF A BAD LUCK GIRL chronicles the relationship between a Chinese woman and a Korean man, both American-born but bound by old world traditions. It "transforms an account of a failed marriage into a work of dark enchantment," says Peter Trachtenberg, author of Seven Tattoos: A Memoir in the Flesh. "This is a memoir that spares no one, least of all its unblinking narrator, who records the breakup in prose as clear and bitter as medicine and as beguiling as a dream." BLACK FISH was a finalist for Graywolf Press's Nonfiction Prize.
