Yu Miri and her translator Morgan Giles will be at Blackwell’s Bookshop, Manchester, on 17th October from 6:45 p.m. for the launch of THE END OF AUGUST – a ground-breaking, multi-generational novel about a Korean family living under Japanese occupation.
“The End of August” by Yu Miri is a profound multi-generational novel set against the backdrop of Japanese-occupied Korea. This epic narrative primarily delves into the themes of oppression both on individual and national scales. The book is often perceived as a commanding yet lengthy exploration of these themes, drawing parallels with the works of renowned authors like Tolstoy and certain aspects of “The Brothers Karamazov”.
Doors open at 6:30
Tickets are £3.00 or free when pre-ordering a copy of the book. THE END OF AUGUST will also be available to purchase on the night and Yu Miri and Morgan Giles will both be signing copies after the talk.
