Mary HK Choi is a brilliant author, specializing in Young Adult fiction. Her books ‘Emergency Contact’ and ‘Permanent Record’ are phenomenal pieces that deal with trauma, identity and ‘coming of age’, informed by Mary’s own experience as a Korean-American, and her forthcoming ‘Yolk’ promises more truth, magic, depth and weight. Mary also has two awesome podcasts, ‘Hey, Cool Job!’ And ‘Hey, Cool Life’ that talk about how we do what we do, and how we survive ourselves in a more gentle and loving way. Our conversation deals with some intense stuff, but is unbelievably beautiful and nourishing - to all of us, and, we hope, you.
