An autobiographicalnovel that takes a life to pieces, putting forward not a coherent,straightforward narrative, but a series of dazzling images ranging from the ordinaryto the unbelievable, fished from the depths of the author’s memory as well asfrom the stream of his day-to-day life as an adult author. Interweaving flashesof the horrific Jeju Uprising and the Korean War with pleasant family anecdotes,stories of schoolroom cruelty, and bizarre digressions into his personalmythology, One Spoon on this Earthstands a sort of digest of contemporary Korean history as it might be seen throughthe lens of one man’s life and opinions.
