Book recs from famous authors, including Celeste Ng and Ada Limón

Recommended by Mary HK Choi, author of “yolk” and “Emergency Contact.”

“I absolutely loved this book. It was long-listed for the International Booker Prize, so I feel a bit silly being like, ‘Hey, this widely lauded, runaway success is good.’ But it’s also such a large, chaotic mood that super hits the spot if you’re feeling emotionally specific. It’s shimmering, dark, lonely, absolutely hilarious and chronicles life as a gay man in Seoul while also heavily featuring an intense Korean mom, so it really basically has everything. It’s perfect for when you’ve got the mean reds that are really just a stand-in for big cries.” — Mary HK Choi
