About this book
Shin's most widely acclaimed work. Writing in an autobiographical style, she offers a retrospective account of when she was a maltreated, poverty-stricken factory worker, which is continually intersected by her self-exposure as a writer struggling with the distressing memory. With its consummation in the revelation of the tragic event of her friend's suicide, the autobiographical narrative provides a vivid picture of Korean society drawn into the whirlpool of modernization as well as the author's personal experience. Shin is a winner of the prestigious Manhae Literary Prize.
