Bae Suah U.S. Tour: Reading @ Deep Vellum Books (Dallas, Texas)
October 14, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Deep Vellum Publishing is honored to partner with Open Letter Books to bring Bae Suah to the United States for a tour to celebrate the release of A Greater Music, translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith, as well as Deep Vellum’s upcoming publication of Recitation, translated by Deborah Smith.
A novel of memories and wandering, A Greater Music blends riffs on music, language, and literature with a gut-punch of an emotional ending, establishing Bae Suah as one of the most exciting novelists working today.
Coming Soon from Deep Vellum Publishing:
The meeting between a group of emigrants and a mysterious, wandering actress in an empty train station sets the stage for Bae Suah’s fragmentary yet lyrical meditation on language, travel, and memory. As the actress recounts the fascinating story of her stateless existence, an unreliable narrator and the interruptions of her audience challenge traditional notions of storytelling and identity.
