A Novel

by Yeo-sun Kwon Translated by Janet Hong

“With taut, steely prose, Kwon burrows into the details surrounding the shocking murder of a beautiful girl. Though Lemon takes the form of a mystery and there’s psychological suspense that will grip you all the way to the end, it isn’t just a whodunnit. Hidden on every page are explorations of grief and guilt, how one should go on after a tragedy. It jolts with its brilliance and tartness. It’s simply electric.” —Kyung-sook Shin, author of Please Look After Mom and I’ll Be Right There

“[Lemon] delves into the grief of having lost a family member, while retaining all the essential elements of a page-turning whodunnit.” —Chosun Ilbo

“[A story of revenge that takes you down] an unexpected road…with an engaging plot…that packs in a lot more than a personal vendetta, such as the meaning of life and death, and fury at a biased, partial society.” —Hankyure21
