In another group someone mentioned that some of the books on the 1001 list aren't in English. Does anyone know which books or book may not be translated into English?

Charity (charityross) Emilee,

The only one I know of for sure is The Taebeck Mountains by Jo Jung-rae. I believe it has been (or will be) translated into French, but other than that, it is only available in its original Korean.

There is a movie adaptation called Taebek sanmaek if you are interested in at least learning the story that way...until an English translation of the book is made available (if ever).

I at least can read French so I should not hit a stumbling block if that is the only book on the list that is not in English. Thanks Charity!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ph | 12 comments I've searched everywhere for the Taebeck Mountains and haven't found it anywhere other than Korean. Now, this was a year ago, so there may not have been anything related to the French version coming up.
