About This Book
The present volume is the latest collection of short stories by Kim In-suk, who, since her literary debut at twenty in 1983 with the selection of her work in the annual spring literary contest sponsored by a daily newspaper, has firmly established herself in South Korean letters through diverse her works and expanding themes including: the agony and vicissitudes of those who spent their 20’s during the politically turbulent 1980’s; epilogue literature, which represents the 1990’s; women’s problems surrounding marriage and family problems; and introspections on life and existence. Gathering tales that were critically acclaimed upon their initial announcement, this collection is noteworthy for the author’s perspective, which embraces with even more profound compassion and reflection the deformed lives led by beings with unvoiced pain and wounds on their souls and bodies. In this respect, the assessment that the "transcendental dream depicted by Kim In-suk’s fiction lies between loss drenched with blood and quiet affirmation that seeks to overcome the former" (Bak Beomsin) is not simply a rhetoric but a valid and appropriate one that ties together the aesthetics and thematic of her works.
