From the back of the book, by literary critic Jeong Hong-Su:

Death hass been a major issue in Ku Hyo-seo’s novels. In this particular story, death goes beyond the existential dimensions of the individual; it is expanded as a thesis encompassing history and society. The writer accomplishes a difficult feat for a short story by bringing together history and the shamanistic world that contemporary novels have long abandoned. Ku demonstrates that life and death have each other at their tails – that the cycle of nature, absent of good and evil, allows for contemporary time to remain interposed within the reality of human history.
