Novels & Essays
Yuliana Kim-Grant, the daughter of Korean transnational parents, was born in South Korea. She grew up in suburban Philadelphia. Despite the near perfect All-American life, reading and writing were the activities that forgave this constant balancing act of being Korean and American. She attended the George Washington University where she received her BA in International Politics. She received her MFA in Creative Writing Fiction from Emerson College. She lives and works in Manhattan with her husband and son.
