One of the exciting things about our increasingly smaller world is the surfacing of authors whose work is known, even award-winning, in their countries, yet new to American readers. Korean author Kwon Yeo-sun’s new novel, “Lemon” (Other Press, 160 pp., $20), is a case in point. Yeo-sun’s novels and short stories have won literary awards in her country, but this is her first novel to be published in English. But I suspect we’ll be encountering more of her writing.
