In New Placid, people have multiple lives. As animals, as children, or in new iterations of their own families, but for one woman, something lingers in the distance.

Jimin Han was born in Seoul, Korea and grew up in the US. Her writing can be found online at Poets & Writers, Entropy, The Rumpus, Hyphen, Pleiades, and elsewhere. She teaches at The Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.

I love these stories for their tight and complex architectures, for their dark corners, and for their willingness to shine a light on all the people we’ve been and all we might become. — T Kira Madden

In these beautiful stories, you’ll see yourself staring right back, mouthing the words, ‘Keep turning the pages. It’ll be okay—maybe not now, but someday.’ — Michael J Seidlinger
