CHOI JIN-YOUNG was born on a snowy day in Seoul in 1981 and moved around often during her childhood. She made her literary debut in 2006 and has won various awards including the 15th Hankyoreh Literature Prize.

SOJE is the translator of Lee Hyemi’s Unexpected Vanilla (Tilted Axis Press), Lee Soho’s Catcalling (Open Letter Books). They also make chogwa, a quarterly e-zine featuring one Korean poem and multiple English translations.

A group of Koreans are making their way across a disease-ravaged landscape—but to what end? To the Warm Horizon shows how in a post-apocalyptic world, humans will still seek purpose, kinship, and even intimacy. Focusing on two young women, Jina and Dori, who find love against all odds, Choi Jin-young creates a dystopia where people are trying to find direction after having their worlds turned upside down.

Lucidly translated from the Korean by Soje, this thoughtful yet gripping novel takes the reader on a journey through how people adjust, or fail to adjust, to catastrophe.
