"Since its original publication, Land of Exile has become the standard English-language anthology of post-1945 Korean short fiction. This new edition renews and enriches the first. The selections have been expanded to include four new stories." "In addition, Bruce and Ju-Chan Fulton have revised the introduction, updated the headnotes, repolished translations, and appended a list of further readings. What has not changed is what the anthology offers readers: a vivid gateway to the history, society, and culture of contemporary South Korea and unforgettable stories, with the motif of exile in Korea's experience of modernity."--BOOK JACKET.Pihl, Marshall R. is the author of 'Land of Exile Contemporary Korean Fiction', published 2007 under ISBN 9780765618108 and ISBN 0765618109.
