Based on Kim’s story The Portrait of a Shaman, it tells the story of Eulhwa, a female shaman, whose son tries to save her from her world of spirits and demigods and convert her to his own Christian beliefs. The conflict between mother and son, with its shattering conclusion, reflects the deeper conflict between the ancient Shamanism of Korea and Christianity.Entry on Goodreads.com here.
