Well before her death in 2011, Park Wan-Suh had established herself as a canonical figure in Korean literature. Her work--often based upon her own personal experiences, and showing keen insight into divisive social issues from the Korean partition to the position of women in Korean society--has touched readers for over forty years. In this collection, meditations upon life in old age come to the fore--at its best, accompanied by great beauty and compassion; at its worst by a cynicism that nonethe turns a bitter smile upon the changing world.
