About this book
The first full-length novel of Kim Youngha, a representing author for the new generation with unleashed imagination, since his first work I have a right to destroy myself. This book is about the story of the first Korean emigrants in Choson Dynasty, sold to Anniquin farms in Mexico as laborers. The author ridicules nationalism in a quiet tone, through the bitter lives of people who were forced to be deviated from their collapsed country.
About the author
Kim is another leading voice in the new generation of Korean writers. His short stories, exploring a modern world full of restless violence, have garnered a great deal of public notice and praise at the same time. His Munhakdongne New Writer Award winning work, I Have a Right to Destroy Myself (Nanun Narul Pagoehal Kwolliga Itta), created a sensation because of its relentless post-industrial portrait of a society crumbling under a depleting moral base, an urban potboiler beset by crime and the incursions of Satanism.
