We just heard wonderful news about recent 805 contributor Helena Rho. Her memoir, American Seoul, is forthcoming with Little A, Amazon's literary imprint. Her memoir tracks her journey to leave "her successful medical career and abusive marriage after decades of following the path laid out for her as a Korean immigrant, model minority, and daughter of a surgeon to discover the freedom and joy of her true identity."
The book will be published next year, but you don't have to wait to read Helena's amazing writing. Check out her short nonfiction piece "Crossroads," which we published earlier this year and will be the first chapter of American Seoul! See more of her short work at helenarho.com.
Congratulations, Helena!!! We can't wait to get our copies of American Seoul.
