Descripción Vintage, 2012. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Shins novel, her first to be translated into English, embraces multiplicity. It is told from the perspectives of four members of [a missing womans] family; from their memories emerges a portrait of a heroically industrious woman. [Mom] runs their rural home like a factory, sews and knits and tills the fields. The family is poor, but she sees to it that her childrens bellies are filled . . . Only after her children grow up and leave their home in [the countryside] does Moms strength and purposefulness begin to flag. Questions punctuate [the] narrative and lead to a cascade of revelations, discoveries that come gradually. . . Shins prose, intimate, and hauntingly spare, powerfully conveys griefs bewildering immediacy. [Daughter] Chi-hons voice is the novels most distinct, but Fathers is the most devastating. . . . And yet this book isnt as interested in emotional manipulation as it is in the invisible chasms that open up between people who know one another best. . . . A raw tribute to the mysteries of motherhood. -Mythili G. Rao, The New York Times Book Review The universal resonance of family life lifts a novel rooted in the experience of Korean modernity to international success. A best-seller in her native South Korea, Shins Please Look After Mom tells the story of Park So-nyo, a devoted, do-all wife and mother who mysteriously goes missing. . . . Primarily composed of four sections narrated by Park, her eldest son, her husband, and one of their two daughters, the book-Shins first to be translated into English-is a moving portrayal of the surprising nature, sudden sacrifices, and secret reveries of motherhood. . . . As the novel progresses and Parks whereabouts remain unclear, much that can be forgotten between mothers and children, husbands and wives, and among siblings resurfaces in the voices of this family desperate to locate the one person who was and always will be the center of their lives. -Lisa Shea, Elle Titles to Pick Up Now: This best-seller set in the authors native Korea examines a familys history through the story of the matriarch, mysteriously gone missing from a Seoul train station. -Karen Holt, O, the Oprah Magazine Indelible . . . In four distinct voices, the character of Mom-a rural farmwoman whose hands could nurture any life-is reassembled by her eldest daughter, whose books Mom couldnt read; her eldest son, for whom she could never do enough; her husband, who never slowed down; and finally Mom herself as she wanders through memories both strange and familiar. Shins breathtaking novel is an acute reminder of how easily a family can fracture, how little we truly know one another, and how desperate need can sometimes overshadow even the deepest love. VERDICT: Already a prominent writer in Korea, Shin finally makes her English-language debut with what will appeal to all readers who appreciate compelling, page-turning prose. Stay tuned: Mom should be one of this years most-deserving bestsellers. -Terry Hong, Library Journal A mothers disappearance exposes family consciences, secrets and dependencies . . . An enormous publishing success in South Korea, this simple portrait of a family shocked into acknowledging the strength and heroic self-sacrifice of the woman at its center is both universal and socially specific. . . . The narration by four different family members exposes guilt and insights all around, from unmarried daughter Chi-hon, a novelist, to [the mother] herself. Partly a metaphor for Koreas social shift from rural to urban, partly an elegy to the intensity of family bonds as constructed and maintained by self-denying women, this is tender writing. - Kirkus Reviews Affecting . . . Poignant and psychologically revealing . . . Readers should find resonance in this family story, a runaway bestseller in Korea poised for a similar run here. - Publishers Weekly Here is a wonderful, original new voice, by turns plangent and piquan.
