LIBRARY OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, Paperback Book

Description

The second short-story collection by Kim Jung-hyuk, the author of Penguin News, features a total of eight short stories, including Syncopation D which won the 2nd Kim You-jeong Literary Award in 2008.

They represent the many sounds sampled by the author when he recorded over 600 kinds of musical instruments.

While the stories begin in an upbeat fashion and work to a crescendo, they end with notes in a minor key filling the vacuum.The Library of Musical Instrumentsis a collection to contemplate on more than one
