Through her novels which were published in 1990, 1991, 1993, two in 1994, 1997 and My Sister Bongsoon which was published in 1998, Gong has become one of the most influential writers appealing to the new generation of Korean women and men. She explores the pain, conflicts and complexities of women searching a place in the new Korea. 'My Sister Bongsoon' is an autobiographical novel. Through the eyes of Jiang, a precocious five-year old girl, the author relates how Bongsoon, a live-in maid who was uneducated, unloved but innocent and hard-working like most of the maids of those days, views the emerging new world of Korean reality. There is anguish, insight, but also immense pain in this novel.

    Choi Chung-Hui et al / 최정희 et al / 2002 / -

    The stories in this collection are written by twelve Korean women writers whose experience, insight, and writing skill make them truly representative of Korean fiction at its best. "The Rooster" is a comical revelation of an old man who accepts the truth that Man and Nature revolve around the same immutable natural law. In "The Fragment," refugees who flee to Pusan during the Korean War suffer the unspeakable squalor and despair when jammed in a warehouse. "The Young Elm Tree" tells the story of a high school girl who falls in love with the son of her mother's new husband. What all these twelve writers share in common is a keen eye that penetrates into the lives of Korean women from the early part of the 20th century to the present. THE AUTHORS Authors included fall into two groups-those born during the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910-1945) and those born after 1945. All the eight authors in the first group experienced the Second World War in childhood and the Korean War as adults. They saw pain, hardship, and death, but they observed courage, resilience, humor, and love even in the most dire times. The four younger writers are active creators of works that have won top literary awards. Their fresh new look at life, their bold experimental style, and their refreshing voices are a reflection of their generation. THE TRANSLATOR Dr. Jin-Young Choi is Professor of English at Chung-Ang University in Seoul. She has translated two novels, numerous short stories and tales. Her Saturday columns in The Korea Herald were collected into one volume form One Woman's Way. All of her translated short stories were published in Korean Literature Today. https://www.amazon.com/Unspoken-Voices-Selected-Stories-Writers/dp/1931907064

    Dopo aver tentato il suicidio per tre volte, Mun Yujong, giovane professoressa universitaria, accetta l'invito della zia, Suor Monica, di accompagnarla nelle visite a un detenuto rinchiuso nel braccio della morte, sperando che questo incontro possa in qualche modo spingerla a vivere. L'uomo, Chong Yunsu, ha alle spalle un'infanzia tormentata: dopo il suicidio del padre e l'abbandono della madre, cresce in un orfanotrofio e poi per la strada, fino a quando, coinvolto nell'omicidio di tre donne, viene condannato. È attraverso un piccolo taccuino che tiene in cella che conosciamo il suo passato: ricordi di una voce dapprima sconosciuta che a poco a poco assume il volto dell'uomo in cui Mun Yujong si perderà. Anche lei, pur provenendo da un famiglia agiata, è prigioniera di eventi traumatici mai superati. Con grande scetticismo, accetterà di incontrarlo ogni giovedì dalle 10 alle 13, per un mese: diventeranno le loro ore felici. Uno davanti all'altra, ed entrambi di fronte alla morte, le loro anime si apriranno lenendo ferite profonde e scoprendo quell'intimità e quella comprensione che la vita non ha concesso loro. Solo così Mun Yujong ritroverà una motivazione per vivere, riconciliandosi con quella rigida educazione cristiana cui si era ribellata con tutta se stessa; solo così riconoscerà la forza dell'amore e del perdono, abbracciando la colpa di Chong Yunsu, altrimenti destinata a non trovare mai pace.     Source: http://books.google.co.kr/books/about/Le_nostre_ore_felici.html?id=XGtNSNA_WpAC&redir_esc=y
