I greatly admired the artistry and power of Hwang Yok-song’s Familiar Things (trans. 2017) so was keen to read the next work of his that Scribe Publications have released in English. While abuses of power in society, the flight of people from country to city and plight of those that eked out an existence in the slums and shanty towns of Seoul is again key subject matter, At Dusk spans a broader timeframe and is far more grounded in reality than Familiar Things (i.e. no folklore).
