In his novel, “Yung Sook” author Richard R. Karlen does not
gloss over the nightmarish consequences of war with all of its
calamitous sequelae that are inflicted upon innocent human
beings. He focuses on one person, the girl, Yung Sook, and it
is her story, the tragedy of her life, with all its lost
possibilities and hopes and dreams that emerges from the pages
of this novel.
The story of Yung Sook is not a pretty one, yet the reader
will find it compelling within its strong, narrative chronicle
of the Korean War and the American involvement in it.
