Episode 373: Jeff Chon

Leave a comment

We’re joined by Jeff Chon, author of the new novel Hashtag Good Guy With a Gun, to talk about political fiction, conspiracy theories, and why some editors are cowards. We also talk about the South Korean novel The Disaster Tourist, by Yun Ko-Eun (translated by Lizzie Buehler), which Jeff says he picked up as part of a project to be “a better Korean,” but then fell in love with because of its lively voice and dark humor.
