Books Read

In 2016, I discovered a world of other cultures when I read an English copy of Han Kang’s The Vegetarian, a novella originally published in Korean. Excited by my discovery, I went to the nearest book store and purchased several Japanese novels. I have since travelled via books to the countries listed below, and I am continuing to read my way around the world.
