“Once I got lost and found myself in the furniture complex at Siksadong. The road was muddy and had deep tire tracks everywhere. Because the doors of the furniture factories were all open wide, I could see the foreign workers working inside. They took sideway glances at me from time to time. A foreign woman, I must have looked strange to them. I am very happy to know that “Dust Star” brings readers from other countries into another language. I feel as if I’ve become that strange woman peeping into those factories again. I pray for its safe arrival to a strange new planet.”
(Novelist Lee Kyung in Asia Publishers blog)
