Yi Chong-jun: Your paradise

Your Paradise(Green Integer, 2004)
Translated by Jennifer Lee, Timothy R. Tangherlini
Originally published as 당신들의 천국, Seoul, 1976

A puzzling story about the struggles of successive managers of a leper colony to improve the lot of the lepers. I think the Complete Review shares my puzzlement. One of the best-selling novels of 20th Century Korean literature, originally published in 1976.
