(English) In the Next Month
“This book is about living, surviving, and positiveness.” Jeon, Mi Hwa
In the middle of the night when everyone is asleep, a father and a son begin packing. The father carries a sleeping bag instead of a blanket. Finally, they leave home at dark night without moonlight and stars. The child’s cool voice reveals their destination. “The place we moved was a small van standing in front of a construction site.” The writer, Jeon Mi Hwa, tells a story of a father and a son without any chance but living in a small van in her new book, ‘In the Next Month’. The book was based on a true story of a family living in a car that once was aired in the media several years ago. Based on that true story, she has created a story of the father and the son depending on each other.
