Translators Bruce Fulton and Ju-Chan Fulton have condensed three of Chongnae's Korean novels, each of which sold more than one million copies in South Korea, into this single English-language edition. Cho Chongnae is one of Korea's most important living writers.

Cho lives in Seoul, South Korea.
Bruce Fulton and Ju-Chan Fulton are the translators of numerous volumes of modern Korean fiction, including the award-winning women's anthologies Words of Farewell and Wayfarer, and, with Marshall R.
