About This Book
A once promising young consultant falls for a beautiful industrial spy and loses everything overnight. This novel, a winner of the Segye Literary Award, begins from a seemingly cliched, movie-like premise, but surprisingly grips the reader throughout with its realism and astute observation of human psychology and emotions.
The author, who had long worked as a ghost writer and has finally published under his own name, crafts a fine story by taking readers into the aftermath of a storm, as it shows what happens when someone hits rock bottom. The protagonist is blacklisted from reentering any respectable white collar job and is forced to take on menial tasks from washing grills at a barbeque restaurant to finally, as the book's title suggests, becoming a dog walker.
Unable to let go of his past, he keeps his distance from co-workers, yet at the same time he applies his polished consulting skills to his work. Things take a turn for the better when he begins walking a rich woman's treasured Tibetan Mastiff, for a jaw-dropping amount of money that enables him to live a comfortable life once again.
