Young-ha Kim succeeds in telling a little-known story of 1033 Korean immigrants who buy passage on the British ship Ilford to sail to Mexico, avoiding the Russo-Japanese war that claimed the Korean Empire in 1905. Asian literature is often too lyrical for me, but perhaps the translation of this work is what makes this story very believable in any language. This story is worth a read.
