Summary

"The guest is smallpox, an infectious disease from the West that destroyed lives and families. The guest is the twin horrors that Christianity and Communism became when they reached fanatical heights in Korea. And the guest is Ryu Yosop, who visits his homeland for the first time in forty years to face the repercussions of his brother's actions during the Korean War." "Author Hwang Sok-yong brings to life a dark chapter of history, a story of a family's quest to redeem one brother's legacy of hate, and a generation's struggle for reconciliation."--BOOK JACKET.
