Fiction Drenched in Reality

It almost seems a lie to call this fiction with how deeply it is rooted in real history. Human Acts follows the catalyst for the uprisings of 1980 in Gwangju, South Korea and the events the follow. The fiction comes into play with the characters and their various points of view. Including, at one point, the nauseating thoughts of a corpse. Even if you're just slightly curious you have to put this at the top of your "TBR" list.
