«Translating the "technologies of cinema and photography" into literary form, Ch’oe Myŏngik infuses his stories with detailed observations of colonial Pyongyang and the fledgling North Korea state. This collection, judiciously selected and translated by Janet Poole, is a brilliant introduction to his experimental works.»

Samuel Perry, Brown University

«Patterns of the Heart . . . will reward readers with even the faintest interest in Korean literature or history.»

Jack Greenberg, Cha: An Asian Literary Journal

«Poole has done commendable work in translating these stories.»

Stephen Mercado, Asian Review of Books

«The stories provide a fascinating look inside the North Korea from the 1930s to the 1950s.»

Tony Malone, Tony's Reading List

«This collection’s publication is a major event . . . While any historian interested in a glimpse of Korean life would benefit from reading these stories, treating them as mere documentation undervalues Ch’oe’s literary talents. His spare, lean style and ability to capture deep pathos are as evocative as Hemingway and feel strikingly contemporary.»

Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

«Patterns of the Heart and Other Stories showcases Ch’oe Myŏngik’s creative mastery, from avant-garde to socialist realism. Read "Young Kwŏn Tongsu" and feel the everyday tension of a country at war. Janet Poole’s craft is at its height here, her delivery vivid, her introduction an exquisite reflection on Korea’s literary landscape chiseled by the cruel primacy of Cold War politics. This is the most important translation in recent years.»

Cheehyung Harrison Kim, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
