Bird and Fish
This exquisite debut novel reads like a roller-coaster ride through an oncologist’s office; filled with hair-raising terrors and prayers for a safe return. Korean artist Hyun Jae Won, 6000 miles from his home-land, crosses paths with Wendy Dale, a married New York City school teacher. Each with a story to tell and a secret to hide; his guilt over his wife’s suicide and Wendy’s breast cancer diagnosis, they are drawn together. What begins as a mutual support system soon turns into a dangerous passion as the pair must take on unscrupulous art dealers, controlling family members and a world that asks if a bird and fish fall in love, where will they live.
