Beasts of a Little Land / Juhea Kim

Beasts of a Little Land / Juhea Kim
Set in Korea and following the lives of its characters through Japanese occupation, World War II and the struggle for independence, this book illuminates a portion of history I only had cursory knowledge of. A historical novel that feels very human, its characters experience the full range of emotion and experience while navigating a world that changes and shifts around them. It has a poetic feel, enhanced by the successful resolution of an obligation from one character to another set up in the initial dreamlike tiger hunt at the beginning of the book. (Also available as an ebook from Libby/OverDrive.)
