2007년에 출간된 박완서의 소설집이다. 표제작을 비롯하여 <그리움을 위하여>, <마흔 어홉살>, <대범한 밥상>등 모두 9편의 단편이 수록되어 있다. 작가는 노년의 화자들을 통해 시시하고 비루한 삶에 대한 아름다움과 그리움을 드러낸다. 또한 소시민들의 일상을 작가 특유의 재치와 유머로 그려내어 공감대를 넓히고 있다.

This collection of short stories by Park Wansuh was published in 2007. It contains nine short stories, including the title story, “For Nostalgia’s Sake,” “Forty-Nine Years Old,” and “The Abundant Dinner Table.” Through the eyes of their elderly narrators, these short stories demonstrate the beauty of, and nostalgia for, the small and ordinary life. The everyday lives of ordinary people are depicted with the author’s usual wit and sense of humor.
