About This Book
Beloved by great numbers of readers of all ages, Gong Jiyoung has released her new novel The Field of the Stars after five years of silence. The new novel is a collection of six interrelated stories that the writer completed while traveling back and forth between Korea and Germany. While centering on the characters associated with Berlin, the writer, with her refined sensibilities and fast-paced style, explores the passions and glorious moments of those destined to fall in love and their memories of sorrow and forgiveness.
The writer has an extraordinary capability of touching the hearts of her readers. In this book, her sharp insight into the changes of the world and her sensuous sentences reveal a far more mature literary competence. Berlin is the place that appears most in this series. Other literary works describe Berlin as the place of the Cold War and the Post-Cold War. In this book, however, the capital of Germany is where the lives of those wandering in search of true life after the loss of their love and ideals are dynamically interlaced. The writer vividly recounts the voices of various characters from a woman with the indelible trauma of domestic violence to a foreigner committed to the historic place of the Gwangju massacre. These voices help readers experience the novelistic world with great intensity.
