Our #BookTuesday pick is Human Acts by Han Kang.

A historical fiction of the 1980 Gwangju Uprising in South Korea, this haunting book analyzes the many layers of corruption, from a young boy's public murder, to media censorship, to the conditions of the common factory worker. This newly translated edition by the award-winning author is intimate, as well as universal, in its attempts to understand brutality, and the strength of humanity.
