A Musician Without a Country: Rhapsody in Berlin by Ku Hyoseo


On the surface, Ku Hyoseo’s Rhapsody in Berlin assumes the form of a mystery. Kim Sang-ho, also known as Yamagawa Kentaro and as Thomas Kim, is a Korean musician living in Berlin who leaves behind a diary upon his death. Sixty-seven at the time of his death, his diary mentions his Japanese girlfriend of 40 years ago, Hanako. Leaving the cryptic description that she is “the place I dreamed of all my life,” Kim Sang-ho commits suicide. Hanako, hearing this news, traces the 40 years of his life since they were apart as she searches for and finds the true reason behind his death. From this point of view, this novel is a classic mystery.
