Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Jang Jung-il was born in 1960. Self-educated, Jang's wide-ranging tastes led him to try his hand at various genres once he began his career as an author. Jang Jung-il is infamous-and has even been jailed-for his erotic and violent fiction. He continues to write, albeit with less controversy, given Korean society's increasing liberality.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. As i described to a friend "it's about modernism and postmodernism and information with a lot of sex and like hating the education system." it's really great. perhaps as a college student myself struggling with the notion of identity and disgusted with the world i have been forced into, i related very deeply to adam. the story is still highly relevant for today which is a really interesting point because the book is focused so much on the acceleration of the world and the globe's need for newness. if this book does come off as amateur i believe that's intentional as the book dwells often on the rise of the amateur over the expert because of our easy access to information. there is one part of the book in which adam reflects on a painting by Munch titled "Puberty" that I think describes the heart of this novel. he remarks that her expression and body remind him of a shivering bird in that they both express desire and anxiety for a pure world.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps it's got some value as a historical object: It was written by a guy not yet 30, at the dawn of South Korea's emergence from authoritarianism. But as literature, it made my eyes roll to no end: full of stilted and unconvincing dialogue, hipster posturing, and self-congratulatory grandstanding in the guise of monologues. A letdown after Volume 2 in the Library of Korean Literature series, Hyun Ki-young's "One Spoon on This Earth," but that was a hard act to follow. I'm grateful this wasn't first in the series, or I might not have wanted to continue.
