Who Ate Up All the Shinga?

Who Ate Up All the Shinga?

Park Wan-suh

What Min Jin Lee Says: In Wan-suh’s Who Ate Up All the Shinga?, the writer recounts her tumultuous upbringing during the Japanese occupation of Korea and the Korean War. With clear-eyed prose and marvellous details, Wan-suh captures the atmosphere, deprivation and social upheaval of the time, while portraying the complexities of collaboration, assimilation and resistance within Korean society. Wan-suh’s warmth and humanity shine through the work.

What They Say: “Lyrical in its descriptions of village life, this gripping book is written with a confessional chattiness that contrasts with the hardships it describes” – Financial Times
