One of our Gosh! Best of 2017 titles! A mix of autobiographical domestic drama and unflinching self-excoriation told in an absolutely massive tome of a book by Korean creator Yeon-Sik Hong. Yeon-Sik and his fellow artist wife Sohmi are choked by the financial stresses and demands of life in Seoul, so move to a remote mountainside home to escape to a more natural, peaceful way of life. But the afflictions of character that torment Yeon-Sik - artistic frustration, apathy and envy - are not magically solved by the move, and life at the mercy of nature is not quite the salve that they expect it to be. A lovely book that speaks to the strength of the central couple'’s relationship with each other, with their art, and with the environment around them.
