Han Kang‘Heartbreaking’ and ‘packed with emotional intensity’ say the reviewers about Mary Costello’s stunning debut novel Academy Street, while Han Kang’s The Vegetarian, translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith, is lauded by critics as ‘haunting’, ‘seductive’ and ‘graceful and vivid’. Both Costello (from Ireland) and Han (from South Korea) have already won major awards in their home countries with these unforgettable novels. We are proud to introduce them in Edinburgh.
