Lemon by Kwon Yeo-Sun

Warringah


Lemon is a fresh, razor-sharp addition to the world of literary fiction. In the aftershock of a schoolgirl’s murder, lies, resentment, and revenge propagate within the small group of her friends (and now suspects). Knowledge and realities are blurred as the novel unravels the different perspectives and truths of each affected character. But identifying the killer is not the novel’s main objective. Rather, it meditates on moments of grief, trauma, body politics, and the search for an unattainable retribution. Lemon is slow-affecting and deliciously off-kilter. One of the sharpest things I’ve read in a long while. Kalli
