The Immortal Flower

The Immortal Flower is a five-century epic set around Asia, with most of the novel unfolding in Korea. Drawing on elements from David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas and James Clavell’s Shogun, the stories are split into five parts, each of them set against one of Confucianism’s five great relationships: ruler/subject, older brother/younger brother, husband/wife, friend/friend and father/son. Told through a kaleidoscope of voices and from characters around the world, the heroes in all the stories must endure the unendurable while seeking to understand the essence of Korea’s very own immortal flower.
