a brief article discussing a collaboration between Alain de Botton and Jeong I-hyeon (Alas, the website seems to have died). Botton is a multi-millionaire philosopher and Jeong is an author perhaps best known for her novel “My Sweet Seoul” which has also been turned into a movie and musical.
According to the article some details remain to be worked out:
Relay essay was primarily discussed, with a dual authors any essay chapters desirous by classics like “Madame Bovary” and “Anna Karenina”. But now other options are also being considered, including any essay a romance for mutual review.
And unfortunately it seems that a publication outside Korea is not certain:
The book will initial be published here before a preference is done either to sell it in Europe as well.
Still, it should be interesting to watch how this develops.
