Book Talk: Farewell, Circus by Woon-Yeong Cheon

Colloquium | September 5 | 4 p.m. | 180 Doe Library

 Center for Korean Studies (CKS)

Woon-Yeoung Cheon has been acclaimed as one of South Korea's most daring and provocative literary voices. In Farewell, Circus (2018), Cheon's nightmarish, grotesque style is movingly mixed with a dreamy tone to create a story as much about an individual woman's personal quest for freedom as it is about disability, marginalization, and transnational migration.
