Yun Humyong's first novel, THE LOVE OF DUNHUANG, originally published in Korean in 1982, takes as its theme the melancholy and despair common to contemporary life. The main character/narrator is unemployed after having quit his job as a magazine reporter. He barely survives on the money his girlfriend earns. One day, he wanders through the streets of Seoul while his girlfirend is in the hospital. He visualizes himself as a lion walking through the desert under the moon in western China. The duality of the character's feelings about his meaningful world of fantasy based on cultural and historical content and the unreality of his ordinary life provides an escape for this lonely individual. Ultimately, it is this duality which enables him to survive in a meaningless world. Winner of the 2006 Korea Prose Translation Award Winner of the 2006 Korea Prose Translation Award
