House of the Winds : House of the Winds is a stirring portrait of a family whose lives have been deeply affected by the Japanese occupation and the Korean War. In episodic and dreamlike prose, the narrator shares stories and memories of those around her: her feckless, mostly absent father; her lonely, loving mother; her gossiping neighbors; and the ghosts of weeping women that haunt their house. This extraordinary novel allows us to see how Korean women lived in the folds of history. Vivid, sensuous, permeated by beautiful images and by the mysteries and longings that define a child's world, House of the Winds is a moving tale of awakening.
