The Center for Fiction Presents Ed Park on Same Bed Different Dreams with Hua Hsu

November 7, 2023

The Center for Fiction was thrilled to welcome Ed Park, author of the novel Personal Days and founding editor of The Believer, to discuss his latest novel, Same Bed Different Dreams. This imaginative, exciting depiction of an alternate secret history of Korea is a genre-defying romp featuring assassins and mad poets, RPGs and slasher films, pop bands and the perils of social media. He was joined by Hua Hsu (Stay True) for a conversation about Korean history and culture, weaving together narrative and time, and pushing the limits of genre.
