About This Book

Where the Clock Hung is Gu’s 8th collection of short stories in addition to 14 novels, since his debut as a writer in 1987. This collection deals with birth and extinction as its motif, and provides readers with introspection into the dark side of their lives.

The title story, “Where the Clock Hung”, is about “ME” who has only several months to live at the age of 47 and visits his hometown around “MY’s” birthday. Visiting his hometown is planned because “I” has a vague memory of “MY’s” birth as his extinction point draws near. As “I” remembers many aspects of memories of the past, “I” sees illusions of “MYSELF” being born 47 years ago and growing, and dying there and illusions of another life being born. This is when “I” realizes that a life is not just about a birth and extinction, but a part of the eternity of the universe.

* Awarded the 6th Lee Hyo-seok Literary Award
* Recommended book by the Korea Publication Ethics Commission
