About This Book

Regarded as one of Choi In-hoon's major works, "House of Idols" is set in Seoul after the Korean War. The narrator reveres two characters, one an established figure in Korea's literary community and the other an enigmatic youth mysteriously related to the literary luminary. The narrator's changing perception of the true nature of the young man and his relationship with the older man illustrates the author's view of Korean society's difficulty in recognizing and establishing sound values. Another entry, "End of the Road," briefly but powerfully illustrates the author's perspective on how the encroaching outside world affects personal lives and in a broader sense how industrialization has changed society. One of Korea's most highly acclaimed and respected authors, Choi commands a wide readership. With intelligence and analytical astuteness, Choi articulates existentialist questions and pursues answers within the hard realities of modern Korea's turbulent history: colonization, war and national division.
