This book is written in Korean only.

In 1643, in still-uncharted Antipodean waters, Roberto, a young nobleman in exile, survives the wreck of his ship and lands on another ship, the mysterious and deserted Daphne, which is anchored just across the Date Line from an island surrounded by treacherous reef. If Roberto can reach the island, when time is always yesterday, can he correct his past? Simultaneous hardcover release from Harcourt Brace. 4 cassettes.

After a violent storm in the South Pacific (the year is 1643), Roberto della Griva finds himself shipwrecked - on a ship. Swept from the Amaryllis, he has managed to pull himself aboard the Daphne, anchored in the bay of a beautiful island. The ship is fully provisioned, he discovers, but the crew is missing. In this fascinating, lyrical tale, Umberto Eco tells of an international race to establish the Punto Fijo of a young dreamer searching for love and meaning; and of a most amazing old Jesuit who, with his clocks and maps, has plumbed the secrets of longitudes, the four moons of Jupiter, and the Flood.
