From Ku Sang’s obituary in The Independent:

The volume Mogwa ongduriedo sayeoni itta (1984, translated as Even the Knots on Quince Trees Tell Tales, 2004) contains 100 poems evoking his life’s stumbling progress through the agonies of modern Korean history.

LKL note: the volume is pretty impossible to find in hard copy. It looks like Kyobo do an ebook, but the English text is available for free on Brother Anthony’s website.
