Native speaker by Chang-rae Lee( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in Korean and held by 43 libraries worldwide
Henry Park is a spy who works for a private company with international connections. Reared in suburban New York in a traditional Korean household, with its lack of emotional display and an inescapable feeling of foreignness, he is a natural: the invisible other, the silent observer who is always present but never known. His assignments are mostly with foreigners, people like himself, who stand on the periphery of a culture and who are eager to embrace him as their own. But his life is falling to pieces - his young son has died tragically, his wife is leaving him, and his boss is watching his every move. Then Henry is assigned to spy on a rising Korean-American New York City councilman, John Kwang
The road by Cormac McCarthy( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in Korean and held by 37 libraries worldwide
In this postapocalyptic novel, a father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. They sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other. This book boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. It is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.--From publisher description

A corporate lawyer in Washington goes to war against his own company to defend the homeless. It happens after Michael Brock is abducted by a homeless man and held hostage. The homeless man is killed by a police sharpshooter and the lawyer is rescued, but the experience changes his life. Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. law firm with eight hundred lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was three years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael survived; his assailant did not. Who was this man? Michael did some digging, and learned that he was a mentally ill veteran who'd been in and out of shelters for many years. Then Michael dug a little deeper, and found a dirty secret, and the secret involved Drake & Sweeney. The fast track derailed; the ladder collapsed. Michael bolted the firm and took a top-secret file with him. He landed in the streets, an advocate for the homeless, a street lawyer

Mat = Taste by Roald Dahl( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in Korean and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Taste is a short, sharp, disturbing story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. In Taste, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a dark and curious story about the twisted side of human nature. Here, two men make an unusual and chilling wager over the provenance of a bottle of wine . . . Taste is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others. 'The absolute master of the twist in the tale.' (Observer ) This story is also available as a Penguin digital audio download read by the inimitable Richard E. Grant. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today
