Book Intro

My Beautiful Garden is a beautiful coming-of-age novel that has won the 7th Hankyoreh Literary Award and sold more than 100,000 copies. Sim Yun Kyung's first novel features sophisticated writing and provides readers with literary pleasure. The story revolves around the story of a family from 1977 to 1981. The protagonist Donggu who has been illiterate gradually opens his mind to the outside world with the help of his teacher Park. However, his foul-mouthed grandmother and cold-hearted father keep him from learning how to read and write.

"A grandmother who wields absolute power without limitation, a heartless father who uses violence as if it is a privilege given to the breadwinner, a mother who only grows thinner just like rotten tofu, and Donggu, who suffers from stammering dyslexia, is unable to communicate with his family. Unfortunately, his younger sister Youngju, who has served as a bridge between family and Donggu's teacher, the hope of his life, dies. After the sorrow and pain have swept him away, Donggu begins to step forward carefully with hope in his heart. Readers may be led to enter into the garden of their own mind, have a seat, stare at the scars of their childhood, and feel empathy and consolation thinking that people had no other choices back then". (School Library Journal)
