One of the most revered novels of 20th-century literature in Korea, Your Paradise tells the story of a leper colony, where the lepers are outwardly treated with the greatest of kindnesses. Indeed, a new director is attempting the reintegrate the leper community and their families with the world outside the leper island. But suddenly he meets great resistance—not from the world outside, but from the lepers themselves, who prefer the protection and organization of the island. The lepers want nothing to do with modern-day Korea with its numerous problems. The often hilarious and near tragic results are the substance of this important novel.
