From the internationally bestselling author of The Vegetarian, a "rare and astonishing" (The Observer) portrait of political unrest and the universal struggle for justice

In the midst of a violent student uprising in South Korea, a young boy named Dong-ho is shockingly killed.

The story of this tragic episode unfolds in a sequence of interconnected chapters as the victims and the bereaved encounter suppression, denial, and the echoing agony of the massacre. From Dong-ho's best friend who meets his own fateful end; to an editor struggling against censorship; to a prisoner and a factory worker, each suffering from traumatic memories; and to Dong-ho's own grief-stricken mother; and through their collective heartbreak and acts of hope is the tale of a brutalized people in search of a voice.

An award-winning, controversial bestseller, Human Acts is a timeless, pointillist portrait of an historic event with reverberations still being felt today, by turns tracing the harsh reality of oppression and the resounding, extraordinary poetry of humanity.

Tender, yet shocking
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 18.11.2017

Again novelist Han Kang ('The Vegetarian') created a shocking, yet so tender and touching piece of written art. Her narration of the students uprising in Gwangju 1980 is kind of a portrait of individuals - those who suffer physically as well as those who suffer psychologically. Kangs quiet writing... Again novelist Han Kang ('The Vegetarian') created a shocking, yet so tender and touching piece of written art. Her narration of the students uprising in Gwangju 1980 is kind of a portrait of individuals - those who suffer physically as well as those who suffer psychologically. Kangs quiet writing is the perfect form to remember the cruelty of those dark days.
