Poetry. Asian Studies. Translated from the Korean by Naoshi Koriyama and Elizabeth Ogata. Chong, one of South Korea's most famous poets, has received all the major literary awards of his country. Take two newly-wed Koreans surprised by war, carried off, one as a comfort woman, one as a factory slave. Let them find each other in Hiroshima just before the bomb drops. Let the man devote himself to the care of a woman blinded by that sudden glare. And you have a marvel of a book.
