This week’s Times Literary Supplement (26 May 2017) contains no fewer than four Korea-related article-reviews:
- Min Jin Lee on Bandi’s The Accusation (Serpent’s Tail) (LKL review here), JM Lee’s The Boy who Escaped Paradise (Norton), Yi Mun-yol’s Meeting with my Brother (Columbia) and Jieun Baek’s North Korea’s Hidden Revolution (Yale)
- Houman Barekat on Han Yujoo’s The Impossible Fairy Tale (Tilted Axis)
- Kelly Falconer on Ch’ae Man-sik’s Turbid River (Dalkey)
- Colin Marshal on Mike Breen’s The New Koreans (Rider)
The latter review is available for free on the TLS website, and the magazine is available for £3.50 at good newsagents. The British Korean Society is hosting a conversation with Mike Breen on 12 June.
The same TLS issue also covers The Tale of Genji and works by Xiaolu Guo, Yiyun Li and Xu Hongci.
