A History of Resilience, Documented by Keum Suk Gendry-Kim


At the Margins, graphic novelist, painter, and translator Keum Suk Gendry-Kim discusses her newest book, The Waiting, inspired by her mother’s family separation and reunion in the midst of war. “I speak about the violence that took place in Korean history,” she says. “But with these stories, I am able to show the resilience of the people who lived through these hardships. The themes of all my books are connected. My parents lived through these events—sometimes intimately, sometimes just by being alive—and I come from them.”
