About This Book

Should they just blow away the earth? Or should they leave it alone? A duo of constantly bullied middle schoolers finally choose ping pong as a means to overcome the everyday violence inflicted on them, even daring to dream of changing human history—armed solely with paddles, that is. In a desperate attempt to survive, these unlikely heroes go on to hold the last ping pong match ever with seasoned players representing the rest of humankind, the outcome of which will determine the fate of the entire earth. Beneath the façade of this hugely entertaining if rather preposterous premise, Park Min-gyu carefully explores the effect that each small gesture made by alienated souls has on the world and exposes the absurdity of life. The 2005 winner of the Shin Tong-yop Fund for Writers, he deftly combines in this latest work his unique imagination and astute understanding of reality. At once buoyant and poetic, the authorís style will irresistibly draw readers. In light of ongoing public discussions on the stagnation of the book market, Ping Pong, Parkís ambitious project of reorganizing humanity, will not only entertain and move readers but also quell any concern about the future of Korean fiction and restore faith in it.
