I’m hoping to catch my friend Samuel Park at Vroman’s tonight at 7 p.m. when he reads from his debut novel, This Burns My Heart. The novel is set in postwar South Korea and centers on a beautiful heroine who is pressured into a loveless marriage. Park and I were graduate students at USC together, and he’s currently an Assistant Professor of English at Columbia College Chicago. I have yet to read This Burns My Heart, but it has received some lovely reviews so far, and I’m wishing him all best!
