About the Book
Written in a beautifully rendered, nuanced language, Wolves is a window into a little-known world.”
Krys Lee - Author of How I Became a North Korean
Sungtae’s short stories build a unique world through their consummate construction and firm roots in reality. With Mongolia as the physical background and through the perspectives of outsiders, Jeon’s imaginative tales mercilessly expose the hypocrisy and duality that lie within all of us. The stories address important issues including North-South Korean relations, migrant workers, capitalism in an era of neo-liberalism, and racially mixed families.
