About this product
- DescriptionPark Min-gyu has been celebrated and condemned for his attacks upon what he perceives as the humorlessness of contemporary Korean literature. Pavane for a Dead Princess is his attack upon the beauty-fetish that reigns over popular culture, detailing the relationship between a man with matinee-idol good looks and the ugliest woman of the century. To complicate matters further, Park also includes a so-called writer's cut of the same story, offering alternate versions of the facts, giving the reader the opportunity to imagine all the different ways this same vel might have been written.
- Author BiographyBorn in 1968, Park Min-gyu published his first book Legend of the World's Superheroes in 2003, for which he was awarded the Munhakdongne New Writer Award.
