      Okay, not a novel, actually a collection of Korean short stories translated by Fulton. Very, very interesting. Korean literature is usually pretty, um, typical of Asian literature in that it is negative, dark, and depressing. Some of these stories definitely fall into that category. But it is a great cathartic outlet for expressing the anger, pain, and suffering endured in this century. Some are happy. Just keep reading.
