Praise

“Hwang Sok-yong has given contemporary world literature a beautiful gift. Written in a voice that is utterly humanistic, The Old Garden combines multiple narratives that resonate on the levels of the historical, political, and aesthetic. Hwang’s masterful command of the novelistic form is evident in his ability to be simultaneously intimate and worldly. Without a doubt, The Old Garden will be seen as the definitive novel of Korea’s Gwangju generation.” —Jeff Shroeder, guitarist for the Smashing Pumpkins and English PhD candidate at UCLA


“Hwang Sok-yong is undoubtedly the most powerful voice of the novel in East Asia.” –Nobel laureate Kenzaburō Ōe


The Old Garden vividly depicts the tumult of Korean history and the individuals caught in its demands. Hwang Sok-yong, one of South Korea’s most important modern writers, poignantly shows us that history is also a story of how individuals live, love, and sacrifice in the tumult of time.” –Krys Lee, author of Drifting House


“Hwang Sok-yong is the most committed, politically active writer of all those who have been translated from the Korean in recent years.” –Liberation


“Hwang Sok-yong is one of South Korea’s preeminent authors.” –Der Spiegel
