The Times Literary Supplement on Please Look After Mother:
‘A captivating story, written with an understanding of the shortcomings of traditional ways and modern life. It is nostalgic but unsentimental, brutally well observed and, in this flawlessly smooth translation by Chi-Young Kim, it offers a sobering account of a vanished past… We must hope there are more translations to follow.’
