Hwang Sun-wŏn is one of the most accomplished and respected short-story writers of twentieth century Korea. This is his first novel to be widely available in English.
The Descendants of Cain is set against a backdrop of one of the most turbulent periods in Korean history – the land reforms of 1946. Hwang Sun-wŏn draws on his own experience of having to flee his North Korean village to provide this fictional account of the bitter struggles between peasants and landowners. He reveals a community caught in political and social turmoil forcing to the surface the selfishness, cruelty, and ignorance of simple people, but also their loyalty and nobility.
