Run Me To Earth By Paul Yoon


From award-winning author Paul Yoon comes a beautiful, aching novel about three kids orphaned in 1960s Laos—and how their destinies are entwined across decades, anointed by Hernan Diaz as “one of those rare novels that stays with us to become a standard with which we measure other books.”

“Few novels can get away with yanking out my soul, trampling it, and putting it back whole and hopeful; this one does”.

The novel begins with three orphaned teenagers who race through fields ravaged by war, bombies tearing through the landscape and its people. It continues nonchronologically, each chapter narrated by a different character whose perspective shifts the story’s center just enough to piece together a truth, just enough to keep hope alive.

Devastating and sanguine, Yoon explores the way memory and chance echo through not one life but several, each of them affecting another for decades to come.”
