We're beyond thrilled to talk with Christine Hyung-Oak Lee about her book TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU DON'T REMEMBER (Ecco). At 33, Christine had a stroke that changed her life. Simple everyday tasks became impossible, emotions once buried rose to the surface, and, what's worse, she could no longer write stories. Christine first wrote about her experience in an article for Buzzfeed. Now she writes about her stroke and its aftermath in this full-length memoir. In addition to chatting about the writing process and how writing impacted her recovery, she shares details about her forthcoming debut novel THE GOLEM OF SEOUL.
