Ancient Book Club Discussion | “Human Acts” by Han Kang: Session 2

July 22 @ 7:00 pm EDT

“A ‘rare and astonishing’ (The Observer) portrait of political unrest and the universal struggle for justice.”

Summary:
“In the midst of a violent student uprising in South Korea, a young boy named Dong-ho is shockingly killed. The story of this tragic episode unfolds in a sequence of interconnected chapters as the victims and the bereaved encounter suppression, denial, and the echoing agony of the massacre.

 An award-winning, controversial bestseller, Human Acts is a timeless, pointillist portrait of an historic event with reverberations still being felt today, by turns tracing the harsh reality of oppression and the resounding, extraordinary poetry of humanity.”
