    Long known as a vital, innovative author in her native Korea (as well as the publisher of Oulipopress), Han Yujoo here presents her first full-length book to be translated into English, The Impossible Fairy Tale (tr. Janet Hong). Called a “stunning debut” by Kirkus in a starred review, and praised as “a new kind of literary horror, as intellectual as it is transfixing” by Sarah Gerard, The Impossible Fairy Tale is a remarkable book. Come meet this exciting Korean author as she is introduced to the United States in conversation with Two Lines Press Senior Editor Scott Esposito. It all takes place at The Lab, long known as a home for excellent cultural events in San Francisco. Copies of The Impossible Fairy Tale will be sold, and Han will sign books after the event.
