Krys Lee on South Korea, Writing, and Disaster

brainsister:

Also in the Los Angeles Review of Books: a review of the new translation of Shin Kyung-sook’s 2011 novel, titled I’ll Be Right There in English.

"Laub’s is a fine, complex piece of writing that examines questions of guilt and responsibility for crimes large and small, and how, if possible, to atone for them."

New Statesman

"La passione per le carte non si può trasmettere. Nel cervello c’è una casella ben precisa. Una casella carte. O ce l’hai o non ce l’hai. Puoi"
