About This Book
This new novel by a 29 year old novelist has been awarded the honor of the
prestigious Munhakdongne Novel Award 2005.
The beginning of this novel has an atmosphere of a loose, funny sketch of a family -- depicting an unemployed father who's completely lost in a computer game called "Housemaid Game," a disgruntled mother, a high school boy with a high-nosed precocious younger brother and an older brother who has left home. But the story soon leaps up into a roller-coaster, with the stage taken by Tiger Woman and the descending Suspicious Housemaids. These Housemaids, on the tracks and tradition of Tiger Women who defied the male dominant society and systems, are now sneaking into middle class families to reveal their hypocrisy and finally deconstruct them.
A tour de force by a young writer with head-spinning imagination at full throttle.
