An apathetic husband and a wife's slow awakening to a harsh reality share center stage in Suh Eun-young's fascinating short story A Walk in the Mountains. Partly a post-modern detective story of a wife trying to find the cause of her husband's disinclination to function in society, it is also a spiritual exploration that culminates in the husband's nirvana-like revelation, only to have the wife come to grips with a disturbing truth.
