RUN ME TO EARTH

January 2020

“If you truly believe in the transformative power of literature then you must read this book, and press it firmly into the hands of others. RUN ME TO EARTH is a genuine masterpiece; fierce, tender, wise, earth-shattering, pulsating with love and hope.”

—Miriam Toews, author of Women Talking

“With RUN ME TO EARTH, Paul Yoon proves, yet again, that he is a master at finding depth of emotion in formal restraint and discovering the timeless core in the most urgent issues of our day. This is one of those rare novels that stays with us to become, over the years, a standard with which we measure other books.”

—Hernan Diaz, author of In the Distance
