Jana wrote the book, with Hi-Dong's input. You see, Hi-Dong was actually the subject of the book, even though the book is technically a novel. It seems like more of a hybrid genre to me. It's quite a bit of non-fiction because Hi-Dong's family in the book was his real family. And it's certainly historical fiction because we learned a lot about Korea during WWII. So I would say it's somewhere in between. I'll call it historical fiction/non-fiction. What the heck. I get to make stuff up.
Here are few pictures from last night. I'll caption each one.
