자전거로 나를 세운다
Adopt me and my bicycle
Falling Uphill the classic epic travel quest comes to South Korea.
“Falling Uphill” has been transliterated into something like “Adopt me and my bicycle” which is true enough but is also translated as “Building yourself up with a Bicycle” which probably has a more colloquial meaning in Korean. I’m also honoured to be grouped with “The Life of Pi” and “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance”. Here’s a review by one of several newspapers, the Korean Economic Daily, which I translated through Google, or you can read the original review in Korean.
You can also flip through the Korean edition here.
As a side note, I wonder if any of my books made it to North Korea?
