Original title: 천 개의 파랑, 2020

One Thousand Blues won a prestigious science-fiction prize in Korea [4th Korea Sci-fi Literature Award] and became an instant bestseller. A hymn to the earth, a plea to slow down, to pay attention to our earth, it is set in the near future, and tells how a young woman befriends a faulty robot and together set out to rescue an exhausted racehorse on its way to be euthanised. It is perfect for fans of Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun.”
