By (author) Suah Bae, Translated by Deborah Smith

<p>""Bae Suah offers the chance to un-know—to see the every-day afresh and be defamiliarized with what we believe we know—which is no small offering.""—<I>Music & Literature</I></p><p>The meeting between a group of emigrants and a mysterious, wandering actress in an empty train station sets the stage for <I>Recitation</I>, a fragmentary yet lyrical meditation on language, travel, and memory by South Korea's most prominent contemporary female author. As the actress recounts the fascinating story of her stateless existence, an unreliable narrator and the interruptions of her audience challenge traditional notions of storytelling and identity.</p>
