Han Kang

What Min Jin Lee Says: Set against the backdrop of the May 1980 Gwanju Uprising and the tragic loss of a young boy named Kang Dong-ho, this seven-chapter novel is a modern masterwork of historical fiction. By skilfully alternating between narrators and protagonists, Kang paints an elegiac portrait of how a 20th-century South Korean tragedy marked ordinary lives.

What They Say: ”A conversation of which we rarely hear both sides: the living talking to the dead, and the dead speaking back” – Sunday Telegraph
