Dog Days Tp

The author of Grass and The Naked Tree returns with a profound tale of family Yuna never wanted to adopt a dog. But with her partner in mourningÐand in desperate need of a boost in moraleÐshe gives in to his humble request. And in the grand tradition of reluctant pet owners, she and their puppy soon become inseparable. The young couple even goes so far as to relocate to soothe their new canine palÕs anxiety. After all, thereÕs nothing like a move to the country to set yourself right. Right? The idyll of a quiet life soon gives way to a surprising degree of antagonism, including clashes with long-time local residents of a different generation. The culture shock is palpable for all three urban transplants as the isolation of their new environs starts to sink in. They eventually adopt another dog, and still anotherÐall while reckoning with the ups and downs of middle-age and childlessness in an unforgivingly traditional milieu. Dog Days is critically-acclaimed and multi-award-winning cartoonist Keum Suk Gendry-KimÕs first foray into contemporary fiction. With the aid of veteran translator Janet Hong, Gendry-KimÕs twenty-first century tale of an unconventional family building trust with one another and their neighbors is a heartfelt exploration of compassion and the unlikely places we find the love we all need.
