Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin

WINNER OF THE MAN ASIAN LITERARY PRIZE 

When sixty-nine-year-old So-nyo is separated from her husband among the crowds of the Seoul subway station, her family begins a desperate search to find her. Yet as long-held secrets and private sorrows begin to reveal themselves, they are forced to wonder: how well did they actually know the woman they called Mom?
 
Told through the piercing voices and urgent perspectives of a daughter, son, husband, and mother, Please Look After Mom is at once an authentic picture of contemporary life in Korea and a universal story of family love.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    This book deserves a million stars! God, it's amazing! Kyung-sook shin is a genius! After reading this book I understood how strongly a mother loves her children and how much sacrifices she makes for them. I couldn't stop the tears when I read the last 2 chapters! If there was an award for best book on earth, Kyung would win

    Tribute to a mother's life long sacrifice and the children who take it for granted, failing to see the person with hopes and dreams of their own until its too late. Story of my life. How I wish I'd had the fortitude and wisdom to have read it while my mother could still be properly thanked.
  • Family is everything

    I grew up in the same village where the author grew up and could find a lot of common between my own mother and mom in this book I cried many times while reading this book. The author used "you" as a second person narrative and she tried to say that we readers are guilty of losing bonding from our own mothers. Great work!
