Inhaltsangabe: A novel of the black markets of the South Vietnamese city of Danang during the Vietnam War, based on the author?s experiences as a self-described South Korean mercenary on the side of the South Vietnamese, this is a Vietnam War novel like no other, truly one that sees the war from all sides. Scenes of battle are breathtakingly well told. The plot is thick with intrigue and complex subplots. But ultimately The Shadow of Arms is a novel of the human condition rather than of the exploits and losses of one side or the other in war.

Über den Autor: HWANG SOK-YONG is one of the contemporary masters of Korean literature. His work, which grapples with the troubled history of his divided country, has resulted in his imprisonment, his exile, and the rare achievement of a wide international readership. Hwang?s novels in English include The Old Garden, a tragic love story set against the backdrop of the end of the Cold War and South Korea's political revolution of the eighties;  The Guest, based on the true account of a violent clash between Communist and Christian neighbors in a Korean village town; and  The Shadow of Arms, inspired by his experience as a Korean soldier in the Vietnam War. Some of his recent bestsellers in Korea, where Hwang is among that country?s most popular writers, include Baridegi ( Princess Bari) and  Gaebapbaragibyeol ( The Evening Star), a coming of age novel that Hwang wrote as a blog.
