(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A vibrant and enchanting novel from one of Korea's most celebrated writers.

When 14-year-old Bugeye and his mother arrive at Flower Island - a vast landfill site on the outskirts of Seoul - they soon become part of the eclectic community of impoverished outsiders who make their living weeding recyclables from the rubbish.

Then, one night, Bugeye notices mysterious lights dancing around the landfill ... Could it be the island's ancient spirits? Is his luck about to change?

Familiar Things depicts a society on the edge of dizzying economic and social change. It is a haunting reminder to us all to be careful of what we throw away.
