Description

Born to a wealthy family in Pyongyang, Kim Tongin (1900-1951) is one of Korea s earliest and most respected modern writers whose naturalist fiction brilliantly depicts Korean life during a period of profound social change. Namesake of the prestigious Dong-in Literary Award, Kim Tongin s succinct writing style, complex psychological portraits, and detached point of view provide insight into early 20th century Korea. Translated by Grace Jung and introduced by Youngmin Kwon, Adjunct Professor of Korean Literature at the University of California, Berkley.
