IWC Copenhagen Calender
We will be reading “Please Look After Mom “ by the Man Booker Prize Asia winner, by Kyung-sook Shin & translated by Che Young Kim.
When sixty-nine-year-old So-Nyo is separated from her husband among the crowds of the Seoul subway station, her family begins a desperate search to find her. Yet as long-held secrets and private sorrows begin to reveal themselves, they are forced to wonder: how well did they actually know the woman they called Mom? The novel explores the loss, self-recrimination, and in some cases, self-discovery caused by the mother’s disappearance. The novel also considers themes related to the self- sacrifice of mothers in general (and in Korean in particular), the relationship between memories of the past and realities of the present, and the chameleonic aspects of identity.
