From the publisher

Everything I feel from reading and listening to music I commit to paper in black pen And gradually, blot by blot, stroke by stroke, A new mode of expression emerges. At this point, it's just scribbles in a diary Not yet reborn as "Henn Kim" of the future. _________________________________ Depression and creativity, love and family, books and music: this personal and vulnerable memoir by the iconic South Korean illustrator explores her life from the ages of seventeen to thirty-three through image, text and poetry. From what nearly broke her to what saved her, everyone will find something to comfort them in Henn Kim's world. Praise for Starry Night, Blurry Dreams: 'A compelling and unique collection that is more than worthy of a place on your bookshelves' Red 'A poignant commentary on the complex emotions that affect all of us at one point or another, from heartbreak to fantasy to sorrow' Creative Review
