“Falling Uphill” has been transliterated into something like “Adopt me and my bicycle” which is true enough but is also translated as “Building yourself up with a Bicycle” which probably has a more colloquial meaning in Korean. I’m also honored to be grouped with “The Life of Pi” and “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance”. Here’s a review by one of several newspapers, the Korean Economic Daily, which I translated through Google, or you can read the original review in Korean.

You can also flip through the Korean edition here.

As a side note, I wonder if any of my books made it to North Korea?

World traveler came home to fulfillment. This is a great story about my trip around the world, coming home, and how this all evolved into working with local schools to illustrate children’s books.
