오뉴월에 문학동네에서 나온 해외문학 작품들에 관심이 있어 하나씩 집어들고 있다. 지난번에 《아일린》을 읽었고, 이번에는 《전쟁 말고 커피》다. 예멘 커피를 블루보틀을 통해 전세계에 소개한 목타르 알칸샬리의 이야기다. 평탄한 인생을 살아왔고 앞으로도 위험을 감수하는 것을 피할 것으로 예상되는(?) 나에게 이런 도전적인 사람의 삶은 참으로 매력적이다.
작가가 프롤로그에도 썼듯이 이 글은 ‘언제나 앞으로 밀고 나가는 일에 내재된 올바름, 매이지도 굴하지도 않는 용기에서 힘을 얻는 다양한 사람들의 혼합체’인 미국적인 이야기다. 나는 근거 없는 낙관을 좋아하지 않고, 성공담에 무덤덤한 편이다. 하지만 이 책을 읽으면서 목타르 알칸샬리의 성공은 갑작스러운 것이 아니라, 오랜 기간 그가 지녀온 태도와 어려운 순간 발휘된 그의 재치, 그리고 환경에 굴하지 않는 추진력 덕에 가능했다는 사실을 알게 되었고, ‘진취’와 ‘도전’이라는 단어의 의미에 대해서 다시 생각해보게 되었다.
이 책의 작가 데이브 에거스의 작품, 《왕을 위한 홀로그램》의 평이 좋은데 책장에 묵혀두고 있다. 이왕 이렇게 된 거 빨리 읽기 시작해야겠다. 그리고 번역자는 《레스》의 번역을 담당했던 분이다. 예전에 읽다가 도저히 안되겠어서 포기했는데, 이 책은 잘 읽힌다.
블루보틀 2호점 오픈에 맞춰서 이 책이 좀 뜰 수 있을까 싶었는데 그렇진 않았다. 2호점이어서 그렇게까지 화제는 아니었구나 싶기도..

올리버 색스는 호기심 속에서 논리정연하면서도 따스함을 잃지 않는데, 그 특별함은 개별 인간에 대한 존중, 세상에 대한 사랑스러운 시선이 글에 담겨 있기 때문이라는 생각이 들었다.
이 책은 그가 인생의 다양한 시기에 쓴 여러 글이 수록되어 있다. 글마다 성격의 편차가 다소 있는 편이고 어려운 의학용어가 많은 글도 있다. 이런 부분은 호불호가 갈릴 수 있지만 자신에게 맞지 않은 글을 과감히 뛰어넘어 읽더라도 충분히 좋은 경험을 하게 해줄 책이다.

It would be great if you could write a piece of material that reveals the joy and sorrow of life. "Requirement..."
Anyway, I thought it would be perfect if I drink alcohol and take a taxi with the writer of the taxi company, Keum Jeong-yeon of the taxi company, and Kim Hon-bi of the liquor store. Anyway, I like the series, and I recommend 'Taxi' and 'Sul' to anyone without any burden.

If a book taegi (book taegi) comes, you can read this book. It's like, "It's a sea burial in the sea!"
Don't you want to know what a bookmark feels like? If you want to know how flat it feels, you can read this book.😂

Sometimes I reduce the limitations of literary capacity, when a well-known piece of good is not well read. It's not that it's not boring, it's that you don't understand well while reading. Like a bewildered spectator in front of modern art.
Languages, changes in the point of view of various characters, and poetic language are masking the message deep in this book, and on the other hand, I feel like I have become a lost child who has come out of it. ⠀⠀⠀

The Jongno Library Festival. There were more people than I thought to be a children-oriented event. I went to return a book that was overdue.

The 2019 Man Booker International is to Jokha Alharthi's 《Celastic Bodies》. It is said that the three sisters gracefully depict the changing appearance of arrogance in traditional society after the colonial period.

A book that was read without knowing much about "political correctness." This article interested me in the subject of 'political correctness' and led me to look up some materials and read several articles. Of course it's not enough to clear up my position yet.
Overall, judging the book, it doesn't seem to have translated a good debate about "political correctness." In fact, the debate ends after only talking about what the blind man wants to say to each other like touching an elephant's leg without meaning to "political correctness." Jordan Peterson is famous, so it feels like a plan. The man on the book band was named Jordan Peterson.😅
I also picked out a book after looking at Jordan Peterson's name He is well known for his 12 laws of life, and offers many interesting reasons for his argument. But I'm not sure whether the rationale is clear or appropriate. It's hard to say that a word of rejection is touching my mind.
I liked the way Stephen Fry and Michelle Goldberg were talking, and it happened that the Greek myth of Zestiben Fry came out of Hyeonam Temple. I put it in a shopping cart.

Oliver Sacks, who had a different spirit of exploration since childhood. In fact, sodium can explode when met with water, which could make a bomb without fear of a brilliant experiment. Besides this, one can only say that the museum is really different when it sneaks around the museum all night long until it is closed, or that it came up with vanadium at that young age as an element to replace the iron of hemoglobin, which is responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood.

Looking back on the book I read, I found that the weight of world literature was not very high, while I had read four Marquez's works. Except for 100 years of solitude, these are short stories.
I can't yet accurately describe the contradictory modifier of "magic realism" in Marquez's writing, but I can definitely tell you how I feel when I read his book. "I don't know what it's about, but it's magical to read...”

I thought I'd come back. Finally.
The theory of light and matter is new in Munhakdongne. When I stop by a secondhand bookstore, I remember looking for it once in a while. I'm so thankful for the neat appearance!

I asked Oh-Di (@o.chawon), a friend of middle and high school, to order flowers for Teacher's Day, which made it prettier than expected. I don't know how the word "also" comes out.

It's fun. It's nice to see YouTube of "Track" before I read the book. But it seems a little distracting, perhaps the difference between video and text. In the video, the humor that comes in the time difference is witty and exciting, but the typeface seems to be exhausting as it is a list of small talk. After all, the book is fun, but it's better to listen to the voice of "Track" on YouTube.
I almost forgot, but there are quite a few romantic parts of physics that might be hard to think of. When you deal with the laws and numbers of nature, you'll find the beautiful side and you'll definitely be sentimental, and you can see the sentences that come out of them everywhere.

I didn't know why I was holding this book, but I kept reading it. Rather than new insights, similar details about the overall nature of humor looked at in existing literature and cases are repeated, and even mentions Korean society in a way that is not in line with the title "emotional topography of Korean society." What did the author really want to say through this book?

I can't laugh very well with English humor. In the first place, British humor is not funny (it's funny, you know?) But I couldn't quite relate to the story of how to cook. Even in times of the year, people can now find recipes or watch videos through smartphones, but it was even more difficult to sympathize with them as they were watching the cooking struggles of the early 2000s. I'm Julian Barnes. I've been through this.

At first, I felt that my writing was short, but as I passed through the pages, I learned. The fact that there is no need to elucidate great people.
The writings on Endo Shusaku, Jean Grenier and Christopher Merrill are particularly memorable.

I listen to podcasts about books constantly while living. <What this is>, <Readout> is taken every time it is updated At the same time, I was looking for another podcast, but I couldn't find a satisfactory broadcast. Then I discovered Munhakdongne's Literature Story, which is no longer broadcast. It's like Shin Hyung-chul's lecture or book talk. You can hear literary stories that are as dense as that. Also, now I have the pleasure of listening to stories about the good books of the time when they became old books. Listening to each and every episode of the show makes me sad.

"The beast dies while enjoying, and the man dies after being full of wonder," Jean-Grini said. He was a natural wonder. Yes, sir. It is not just about the big and the great What a wonder a small blade of grass that cast its face between the sidewalk blocks. How much do we want to live?
'Now I know in this world that what I can and cannot be raised is sharply divided. Some of the things that had been cultivated with no chance of growing up were plants that were home to hot, dry land, and people's hearts.’

On the news of the ruling, Shimon Veil's name is now in sight. To my surprise, I first knew Simon Berew when I was in elementary school. Of course, only the image of a female labor activist who leads the protest rather than detailed activities remains in her memory. When I liked the picture rather than the book in the line, Jang Jun-ha, Ham Suk-hun, Sartre, Billy Brandt, Mandela... It was a series of great men who had fun choosing their backs, and if you look again, you can't help but be surprised by the list of great men in the 1990s. The publisher who designed and produced the series must have had advanced ideas and courage.

I always feel good when I read Oliver Sacks' book. I feel like I'm getting good energy from him in heaven!
There is a new book that collects Oliver Sacks' essays. I happened to find it and I was excited. Alma! Thank you!
