Hwang Sun-wOn, _The Moving Castle_, tr. Bruce & Ju-chan Fulton,
It's been over ten years since I've read the latter item, which I thank
Yoo-jung Kong for reminding me of. I'm trying to remember exactly how
the book proceeds, but I'm recalling that it takes on a really strange
reality (and not simply gender-)bending quality with the sexually
ambiguous shaman. I could well be wrong on that.
Btw, it's come to my attention that many users are unable to read the
circumflexed o's and u's that I send out, so I think I'll be using
capital letters instead in romanization from now on for KSR. Ugly, but
I don't see much choice--unless I make the leap to the new gov't
transcription which hasn't exactly been something I've been planning
on. Life is long, however, and many things are possible....
