An Observer Picture Book of the YearA Read for Empathy Collection Choice, chosen by EmpathyLabA cinematic journey through the Seoul subway that masterfully portrays the many unique lives we travel alongside whenever we take the train.

A poetic translation of the bestselling Korean picture book. 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. ? ‘[S]ensitive, closely observed portraits.’ —Publishers Weekly? ‘A contemplative, poignant rendering of everyday journeys.’ —Kirkus Reviews? ‘[B]eautiful and unusual.’ —Youth Services Book Review? ‘Bewitching.’ —Foreword Reviews? ‘A poetic tribute to Seoul and its people, I Am the Subway makes for an unforgettable journey.’ —BookPage
