Endless Blue Sky
by Lee Hyoseok
Translated by Steven D. Capener
Set in 1940s colonial Korea and Japanese-occupied Manchuria, Endless Blue Sky tells the love story between the Korean writer Ilma and the Russian dancer Nadia. The novel is both a thrilling melodrama set in glamorous locations that would shortly be tragically ravaged by war and a bold piece of writing espousing new ideas on love, marriage, and race. Reading this tale of cosmopolitan socialites finding their way in a new world of luxury hotels, racetracks, and cabarets, one gets a sense of the enthusiasm for the future that some felt in Korea at the time.
