About the Book

Forty-year-old In-mo, a movie director who's been jobless for the past decade decides to move in with his widowed mother. His older brother, with five criminal convictions, has already moved back. Then younger sister Mi-yeon arrives with her bratty, rebellious fifteen-year-old daughter. Mom is delighted to have her entire dysfunctional family back again, but what ensues is both comic and frightening.

Fast-paced and imaginative, Modern Family introduces English-speaking readers to a bright new voice in world literature.

Cheon Myeong-Kwan won the Tenth Munhakdongne Novel Award for The Queen of Red Bricks. Modern Family has been made into a movie in Korea.
