Kim's essay, "The Saving Grace of Spring Rolls," appears in The Refresh Weekly: "When my mother wasn't in my life, I tried to make her spring rolls on my own. I would try to make something tangible out of something illusory, to prove that what we had was real."
Recent science and medical pieces include Kim's essay, "The Perfume of the Dying," which has been published in Ars Medica: A Journal of Medicine, The Arts, and Humanities, and a story on The Clock of the Long Now, a 10,000-year clock, for Redshift.
