As part of the next of the 5 Dalkey Press Korean Literature Series (more about that awesomeness tomorrow!), Ch’oe In ho’s Another Man’s City has been translated by Bruce and Ju-Chan Fulton, whose imprimatur as translator is always a good sign.
Ch’oe is perhaps most famous for his work The Square, which compared the two underlying social philosophies of North and South Korea and found them both wanting, but this book also looks promising.
The excerpt is brief, surprisingly graphic, and you can find it here: Another Man’s City at Asymptote online..
