"The Descendants of Cain" by Hwang Sun-won (translated by Suh Ji-moon)

Dear all,
In December, we will have read a medium-length novel by Hwang Sun-won. Despite Brother Anthony's opposition, I am putting my foot down. :`-) I promise to be more flexible next year! I just really need to finish this semester and this is a translation I must read. (Yes, so very selfish of me.)
As for how to acquire a copy of this book: the sensible option would be to get it in e-book form on Amazon, at around 14 US dollars. The paperback copies are available but hard to find (I believe they are out of print). The RAS office carries a few at 30,000KRW per copy, which will be on sale at the next RAS Lecture. Please go to www.raskb.com for a scheduling of upcoming lectures. You might also want to make sure the copies are in stock beforehand. Again, limited number of copies in stock.
If any of you have a translation of Korean literature that you want to suggest for our list next year, by all means, let me know.
