Memory is not something that can accurately be relied upon to bear witness to a crime, especially if it happened 16 years ago from the perspective of someone who did not even see it. But this is what Kwon Yeo-sun, recipient of several literary awards in South Korea, does with Lemon, which was originally published in 2019, and is the first of her work to be translated into English in 2021. The novella’s origins come from a short story she wrote in 2016 called “You Do Not Know” and is separated into eight chapters that cover 17 years from 2002 to 2019.
