From the Publisher
"A human being, who wants to be a god in this age, has only two ways of becoming one: to create something or to kill somebody." Representative of this novel's startling premise are the comments of the Munhakdongne nominating committee, which called it both "delicate" and "provocative," as well as "odd" and "shocking." The existential hero is a guide ?who instructs in the art of suicide.? He leads his clients on a surreal journey that mixes a fatalistic fantasy with the poignant pathos of a committed realist. Kim's prose documents a zeitgeist in which spiritually undernourished modernists sate themselves in material abundance, sex and art, only to feel starved for something essential.
