Book Recommendation of the Week
The Vegetarian by Han Kang
“This short novel is one of the most startling I have read. Set in contemporary South Korea, it explores the life of a young married woman, Yeong-hye, whose decision to give up meat ends up devastating two families. Han Kang’s achievement is to suggest that this defiant act of vegetarianism can smash several lives and threaten the order of a society.”
-from Julia Pascal’s review on The Independent
suggestion made by ext. director Diana Park
