Lee Woo-Cheol is a running prodigy, but in Japanese-occupied Korea the Second World War is fast approaching. In the present day, his Japanese-born granddaughter trains for a marathon in Korea. This stunning new translation of Yu Miri’s epic, semi-autobiographical novel, weaves together the past and present in a complex, beautiful and brutal family history.
