Ten titles from the Library of Korean Literature are slated to be published by Dalkey Archive Press. The official U.S. release date is Saturday, November 16.

 

 

This is a noteworthy accomplishment since translated books make up only 2% of the entire U.S. market.

 

These ten titles draw from major works of Korean modern and contemporary literature.
