About This Book

In this latest novel by Jo Jung-rae, author of several epic bestsellers including "Taebaek Mountains" and "Arirang," the 63-year-old author neatly wraps up his two decades of search through the ideological tension on the Korean Peninsula through a long-term prisoner named Yun-hyeok, who converts from communism in the early 1990s.

Facing the collapse of the Soviet Union and the famine in North Korea, Yun-hyeok's prison mate Dong-geon dies from shock. To the main character who faithfully believed in the socialist ideals, the death of his closest partner symbolizes the failure of socialism. Amid anger and despair, Yun-hyeok strives to come up with a rational reason for the failure.

Through the voices of several people, Yun-hyeok finally concludes that socialism had made a huge error in assuming that rationality drove human beings. In reality, however, people lived on their instinctive needs. After the realization, Yun-hyeok manages to break out of the ideological trap and finds new hope for life through his love of children.
