About This Book
This latest collection by Kim Young-ha is his most popular. In 2004, it won the Isan Literary Award and the Hwang Soon-won Literary Award.
In this collection of eight stories, which includes "Oppa Has Returned" and " Man Who Sold His Shadow," the writer vividly pictures the life of our times with grasping modern sensibilities and a unique sense of velocity; he captures the important aspects of our contemporary consumer society. The concise sentences imbued with his sharp awareness of reality, cheerful imagination, incisive humor, and frightening irony make the stories linger in the mind of his readers. The eight sensuous illustrations by Lee Woo-il, a gifted young comic book writer, doubles the pleasure of reading.
The eight pieces describe plausible events that may happen somewhere in the here and now in a meticulously arranged structure. They assure us that Kim Young-ha’s literary world has matured as he portrays in a broad spectrum various kinds of people living in a depraved age.
