About this book
The civil war between the North and South left both physical and psychological wounds and the permanent division of the nation still haunt those families separated by the 38th parallel. Both The Wounded and An Assailant¡¯s face deal with the issues of the national trauma of the Korean War. While The Wounded underscores the trauma of experiencing violence and death and the impossibility of expressing the very experience, An Assailant¡¯s Face presents ambivalence and impossibility of delineating between victims and victimizers.
