About This Book

The eight tales in this volume reflect Han Kang"s unique literary world in which she describes in an outstanding and highly condensed narrative the "sorrowful beauty caused by the tiredness and hopelessness of life." Stories such as "One Day He," "Baby Monk," and "I Wonder How Dogs Feel at Sunrise" depict the diverse relationships in which people go amiss because they can't find any hope in their lives.

The title story, "The Fruit of My Woman," is about a woman born in an impoverished fishing village. She wants to go to the ends of the earth on her own but, believing that marriage is ultimately one of the best ways to face the world, she ends up settling down with her husband. They gradually lose their attachment and affection towards each other. Aside from the communication problem, the woman's wish of running away from her husband to a remote place fails to come true. She then imagines herself as a plant soaring through the veranda ceiling of her house up to the roof top. Through this outstanding story, the writer shows that people have a strong will to escape from the mental fatigue and hopelessness of modern life.
