A NovelBook - 2016
A riveting work from the author of the 2016 Man Booker International Prize-winning novel "The Vegetarian”. Gwangju, South Korea, 1980. In the wake of a viciously suppressed student uprising, a boy searches for his friend's corpse, a consciousness searches for its abandoned body, and a brutalized country searches for a voice. In a sequence of interconnected chapters the victims and the bereaved encounter censorship, denial, forgiveness, and the echoing agony of the original trauma.
