NEW FROM FORSYTHIA, AN IMPRINT OF CODHILL PRESS
by Ch’ŏn Unyŏng
Translators: Bruce and Ju-Chan Fulton
Inspired by the case of a torture specialist in 1980s South Korea who from 1988 to 2000 was a fugitive in his own house, The Catcher in the Loft (published in South Korea in 2011 as Saenggang) is in equal parts a portrait of a man coming to terms with his notorious past and a coming-of-age story centered in his dependent relationship with his college-age daughter, who has always thought of him as a patriotic policeman.
