About This Book
Novelist Kim Young-ha has had a busy life, juggling new novels and his job as a professor, radio DJ and husband. At the peak of his professional life, though, he left for Sicily, and then came his essay "Memory Lost."
The past years have indeed been fruitful, with his book being published in America, France, Germany and Japan and becoming one of the most popular writers in the local literary circle. But like any other busy person living in this society, Kim needed a break. After bidding a momentary farewell to his wife, Kim left for the beautiful region of Europe last year, and there he found answers to some of his questions.
"Where was the young artist that lived inside me? Is he still alive?," he asks himself along the rough roads of Sicily.
Through his essay, Kim finds his way back to the time when he decided to start writing. The young, naive and innocent artist inside him resurfaces with the trees, hills and other exotic settings of Sicily and Kim also offers colorful photos to go with his personal stories.
The photos are simple, from a peaceful port at night, to friends chatting at an evening party, to churches and farms, but they have a special affinity that will warm the hearts of busy, hopeless readers, just like the writer.
