When Adam Opens His Eyes Paperback / softback
First published in 1990, this is a sensational and highly controversial novel by one of Korea's most electrifying contemporary authors.
A preposterous coming-of-age story, melding sex, death, and high school in a manner reminiscent of some perverse collision between Georges Bataille and Beverly Cleary, the narrator of this book plows through contemporaneous Korean mores with aplomb, bound for destruction, or maturity--whichever comes first.
