Labour of love

I'm eagerly awaiting the publication later this year of the Korean edition of Janet Frame's autobiography, published by the SIGONGSA company. This title will be followed in 2011 by the publication of the Korean translation of the Commonwealth Prize winner THE CARPATHIANS.

I have lived in South Korea (teaching English at a provincial university) and have a great fondness for the language and the people and the country, so it will be a special pleasure for me to have been part of making Janet Frame's work available there in translation.
