The devastating hold the Korean War still has on the ordinary citizens of South Korea is revealed here in a novella and four short stories. Although the war happened many years ago, old animosities remain, and elderly nursing home residents are traumatized by their belief that the new resident was a collaborator. A child is made a laughing stock when she thinks the condoms tossed aside on the beach by American GIs are balloons. Chung Yeon-hee has published several novels and numerous short stories and essays. Hyun-jae Yee Sallee has translated Korean literature for nearly twenty-five years.
