After living in America for over a decade, Eun Ji Koh’s parents return to South Korea for work, leaving fifteen-year-old Eun Ji and her brother behind in California. Overnight, Eun Ji finds herself abandoned and adrift in a world made strange by her mother’s absence. Her mother writes letters, in Korean, over the years seeking forgiveness and love—letters Eun Ji cannot fully understand until she finds them years later hidden in a box. "The Magical Language of Others" is a powerful and aching love story in letters, from mother to daughter, and E.J. Koh joins us to discuss her memoir.

E.J. Koh has a book signing at Boswell Book Company tonight, January 14 at 7pm. For more information on E.J. and "The Magical Language of Others", visit
