#NewRelease Finds at the #Library on this #Podcast: #BeastsofaLittleLand by #JuheaKim

Welcome back, my fellow creatives! Winter is the perfect time to curl up in a blanket with a pile of books, and I can think of no better place to find those books than at the local library.

It’s all too easy to just meander over to my favorite sections, though, and 2022 is the year to try new things! So, for this series on Story Cuppings, I am only going to pick books from my library’s New Release shelf by the entrance. Those books could be of any genre, fiction or nonfiction. If it’s on that shelf, it’s game for a podcast!

Today I plucked from the New Release shelf:

Beasts of a Little Land by Juhea Kim

What does a reader experience in those opening pages, and what lessons can a writer take away in studying but a few paragraphs? Let’s find out!

If you do not see the audio player above, you can access the podcast here.

I have to say that this book is a joy to read out loud. There is brevity here, yet so much said in so little space!

And say, what’s on the New Release shelf at your own local library? I’d love to know!

Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!

    • THAT’S RIGHT! I keep forgetting Lewis went to outer space!!! I should get into that one of these days…

      You justhang in there, okay? With exams and captain chaos and hawklad and bedlam, you just hang in there. Praying you’ve got good things coming your way!


  1. What an eye-catching cover! Having listened to you read, Jean, I hopped on the link to Amazon. Not what I was expecting at all. Amazon best seller, an epic historical novel about a period of Korean/Japanese history about which I know nothing! I wonder if it has reached our library? Must check.

    • I hope it has, Chris! Yes, this was a surprise for me, too. And it’s cool that the writer has the blended understanding of her native Korean and English so that the language is truly hers, not some translator’s take *of* her writing.
