Meeting with My Brother: a Novella
A cool, spare story of a middle-aged South Korean professor meeting his North Korean half-brother for the first time in a Chinese border town packed with tourists. Little action but lots to think about, this story lets the reader glimpse the deep strangeness of the Korean divide. Atmospheric in a minimalist kind of way. I enjoyed this; try it if you like fiction that takes you someplace new.
