    A wonderfully written autobiographical novel from one of Korea's leading authors who died 2 years agoEssentially the author's life story up until the point in January 1951 in a deserted Seoul waiting for the Communist North to re take the city but too exhausted to flee she realised that her destiny was to act as a witness to events and to become a writer However this is in many senses closer to a novel than an autobiography As she admits in a foreword to the Korean original she relies on imagination as much as recollection for certain parts of the story and at times her own memory of events differs sharply from that of other family members As an aside for some reason the foreword is omitted from the English translationThe book covers the period from her birth in 1931 and hence the later part of the Japanese occupation which is covered with admirable balance as well as the Second World War and the brutal first 6 months of the Korean war The story is told from her perspective at the time largely without the benefit of hindsight and makes for a wonderful record of life in Korea in this turbulent periodHighly recommended

    In this work described as autobiographical fiction Korea’s greatest and most popular female author offers a straightforward and highly readable account of the first 20 or so years of her life in Korea including her experiences during the Occupation the post Liberation period the early days of the division of Korea into North and South and the Korean War The most dramatic scenes come at the end of the book when the war has settled into a stalemate and the US backed nationalists are rooting out Communists in the territory they control and the narrator her mother and particularly her older brother who had been conscripted into the Communist Korean People’s Army come under suspicion of being “reds” Her brother is detained and “accidentally” shot in the leg and the narrator herself is interrogated and freed but still brutalized by nationalist vigilantes She says on the last page “I felt as though I had been chased into a dead end and then suddenly turned around Surely there was some meaning to my being the sole witness to it all How many bizarre events conspired to make us the only ones left behind when Communist forces retook Seoul and the city’s population fled south? If I were the sole witness I had a responsibility to record it That would compensate for this series of freak occurrences I would testify to not only to this vast emptiness but to all the hours I’d suffered as a worm that is being forced to grovel like a worm before her tormentors Only then would I escape being a worm” The ending has been described as abrupt but in fact the book stops where her other already published works take up in the wind down of the war and the advent of US military occupation and as such can be viewed as a kind of preuel to her main body of workNote shinga shing’a is a semi edible wildflower in the buckwheat family Evidently the name is as mysterious to contemporary urban Koreans as it is to Western readers and figures in the title of the book as a symbol of that which has been lost in the transformation of Korea from a rural agrarian to an urban industrial society

    I'm not uite sure why this is called an autobiographical novel rather than a straight up autobiography; it's written in the first person in a straightforward narrative style though obviously from the subjective perspective of Park's memories It begins with the author's childhood about four or five years old living on an estate in the countryside near what would become the border between the two Koreas during the last years of the Japanese occupation and ends with the second capture of Seoul by the North Koreans when she was in her early twenties The historical events are seen from the perspective of their effects on her family; Park was one of the earliest Korean women writers to give a woman's perspective on historical events The emphasis throughout is on her family and particularly her mother her father had died before the book begins; there are also interesting descriptions of her grandfather declining in health and fortunes but still clinging to a sense of being a noble Yangban her brother a leftist who abandons his activism and ultimately seems to be disillusioned with the North Korean regime and her younger uncle who is good at making money by dubious means The novel gives a strong sense of what Korea went through during most of the twentieth century although it stops with the war apparently some of her other novels are also autobiographical; I haven't read anything else but a collection of her short stories

    25 stars This autobiography contained some interesting subject matter but it didn't hold my interest in many parts So unfortunate I had wanted to read this for a few years now and just happened to discover it on Hoopla recently The author explains how life changed for her family leading up to and during World War II liberation and political division and at the onset of the Korean War I found it difficult to keep reading at many points because of the writing style This is a translated work but I'm inclined to think my issue isn't the translation The few parts I enjoyed the most were all natural descriptions of the Korean countryside of the author's youth These sections were brief usually a few paragraphs or less than a page long but paid heed to particular plants colors seasons etc and felt somewhat vivid in my mind as a result The remainder of the book in contrast felt like a play by play seuence of events with too much telling and not enough showing It lacked the description and detail of the brief nature sections As far as I can tell there is nothing in the translation that would explain the difference I also wonder why the author chose to end her narrative at such an abrupt point

    Essential reading for readers seeking a different perspective on the years its covers I felt a lot of conflicting emotions reading this as it differed so much from the narrative one hears In this book the Soviets and fellow Koreans are maligned than the Japanese and the chaos and confusion take a front seat The bitterness is palpable and the voice is strong and without melodrama Very different complexity and sources of tension than in many novels about the period Ends somewhat abruptly

    Will have to re read because I read past the words I didn't know I read the book aloud to myself to practice my reading skillsNevertheless I enjoyed this book and understood enough to know that the story is engaging as well as a precious autobiographical account of the division experience of Koreans who are seperated from their hometown and family

    Read for the The Literary Life Podcast 20 for 2020 Reading Challenge 12 A Foreign Non Western BookThe only reason why it took me so long is because studies kept rearing their head But it's a very readable book and the two translators really did an incredible job Park Wan Suh a survivor of the Korea war that gave origin to the still ongoing division between Communist and capitalistic Koreas tells her hardships growing up I expected a bit of the insights into the political struggle but it's true she was just a teen back then and couldn't have been involved in much In passing at page 170 or less she mentions her conversion to Catholicism which would be super interesting to read about

    I didn't initially realize this was an autobiography when I picked it up so I'm not sure if I would have chosen to read it initially if I'd known this since I'm not usually a big autobiography fan I think I would have rather opted for reading one of Park Wansuh's novels but this is what was available to me at the time and it turned out to be rather interesting in terms of understanding what life was like in Korea in the 1940s and especially in 1950 in Seoul at the start of the Korean War since my knowledge base here is uite limited It's not necessarily a fast paced book but it is an honest one that portrays the different people in Park's life in an un idealized but also tender and nuanced way I appreciated how Park was able to delve into her own reactions to her family members for example being somewhat uncomfortable scared of and sometimes disgusted by her grandfather after his stroke even as she feels pangs of strong sympathy and filial duty for him or for recognizing her mother's varying contradictions and irrationalities while also admiring her strength I had also had no idea how difficult life was for Seoulites as soldiers from the North invaded and retreated with people's loyalties uestioned each time harshly in the ideological as well as physical battleI had hoped for of an understanding of what Korea was like under Japanese occupation but the details here were limited and interestingly not very acrimonious Rather Park credits the Japanese financial institutions with enabling her mother to get a loan to buy a house that wouldn't have been possible after independence and she describes the pressure to change her family's name to a Japanese surname as being related to matters of financial success than any other factor I don't say this to downplay Korean suffering under the Japanese regime Park notes that her family probably experienced life somewhat differently because of her uncle who was involved in government but merely to note that I was surprised by a milder portrayal of the occupying forces than I had expected This however was not the purpose of the bookI found it interesting that this book ended at view spoilerarguably one of the most tense points in the book and also at the moment that Park realized her destiny as a writer although she didn't actually publish until much later in life I wanted to know about what happened and felt a bit reluctant to leave the characters in this desperate seeming situation though at the same time not wanting to in case there were tragedies in store hide spoiler

    Park a highly acclaimed author in South Korea describes her experiences growing up in Korea during the Japanese occupation World War II and the Korean War Her family lived in a village outside of Seoul and was dominated by her domineering but loving Grandfather and her unscrupulous Uncle Her father died when she was very young; her headstrong Mother decides to move her children to Seoul to the consternation of her in laws as education and opportunities for them are better there The family suffers hardship and social isolation for their country ways but Wan Suh is able to make her own way as she is just as independent and defiant as her mother Due to her beloved brother's Communist sympathies the family is caught between his leftist beliefs and friends and the changes that are taking place in American occupied Seoul and the nearby Soviet run northern portion of the country Their lives and health are threatened when the Korean People's Army invades Seoul as her brother meets old friends that are amongst the invaders and especially when the Republic of Korea Army defeats the People's Army and seeks to root out Communist sympathizers in the aftermath of the invasionI thoroughly enjoyed this autobiographical novel although the author gives us no indication that it is anything but a work of nonfiction This was an excellent description of life in mid 20th century Korea and the story is uite compelling and well written
