The Girl Who Wrote LonelinessBook - 2015
The highly anticipated release of the most personal novel by Kyung-Sook Shin, who first burst on to the literary scene with the bestseller "Please Look After Mom." Homesick and alone, a teenaged girl has just arrived in Seoul to work in a factory. Her family, still in the countryside, is too impoverished to keep sending her to school, so she works long, sun-less days on a stereo-assembly line, struggling through night school every evening in order to achieve her dream of becoming a writer.
