About This Book

Since debuting with the short stories "Roots" and "Open Games," Kang Sok-kyong has portrayed a group of characters that search for salvation in the unceasing agonies of the human condition that hampers true life. In 1986, her novella "A Room Deep in the Forest" won the sixth Nokwon Prize for Literature and the tenth Today’s Writer Award. "A Room Deep in the Forest" which depicts a young man wandering in search of true life, caused a great sensation. The critics said that while "thoroughly highlighting the third life, the work assures us that the truth lies in the gray zone" and that it "is one of the remarkable fictions of the 1980s and an important amplifier of critical awareness of the time."

Her new novel, Deep Steps in Me, shows that the writer’s understanding of reality deepened and matured in the 1990s when her main concerns expanded. Deep Steps in Me, the writer’s fourth novel, is the brilliant result of long-range planning and field study. The novel describes young people’s heartbreaking wanderings and their fanatical and platonic love. With sweeping erudition on music, archeology, and plays, and by drawing upon her rich experience in China and Germany, the writer intensely materializes how people in their thirties wander and love. In a unique intellectual and refined style, the writer depicts both the fanatical love and the pure love of ordinary individuals.
