I Am The Subway

A NEW YORK TIMES/NYPL BEST PICTURE BOOK OF 2021!

A cinematic journey through the Seoul subway that masterfully portrays the many unique lives we travel alongside whenever we take the train, by author, Kim Hyo-eun.   A poetic translation of the bestselling Korean picture books.  

Accompanied by the constant, rumbling ba-dum ba-dum of its passage through the city, the subway has stories to tell. Between sunrise and sunset, it welcomes and farewells people, and holds them―along with their joys, hopes, fears, and memories―in its embrace.

Originally published in Korean and brought to English-speaking audiences with the help of renowned translator Deborah Smith (The Vegetarian), I Am the Subway vividly reflects the shared humanity that can be found in crowded metropolitan cities.
