Year Of The Dog (free ebook)


Initially published in French 10 years ago ('L'Année du Chien' - 'Breves', 2007), 'Year Of The Dog' remains so far my only non-fiction Seoul 'dragedie', and the only one written from a foreigner's point of view. Yet it's not my first story featuring a dog - that would be 'Le regard d'un ami' (1979), where the narrator himself is canine. 

Which, as you'll see, doesn't make me humane.

I met this dog in Sanggye-dong, Nowo-gu, along Danghyeoncheon, long before Seoul upgraded it into a park. That streamlet also appears in my essay "Inhuman, all too human Seoul" (picture of an old timer who used to grow vegetables there).

Like for 'Guisin-dong', you can download this story for free. I hope you enjoy it, but welcome any comments (e.g. on dragedies website, on Amazon...).

Guisin-dong (free ebook)

Here's a small gift for you: 'Guisin-dong', a short fiction I wrote a couple of years ago (part of my collection of  Seoul 'dragedies' in English). 

Guisin-dong is not the kind of Seoul neighborhoods you want to visit, but now you can download it for free, right here:  Guisindong2012StephaneMOT.


Any comments and critics are welcome (e.g. on this site, on the Facebook page, on Amazon...).

Interview with Colin Marshall

If you have one hour to spare, I invite you to listen to the conversation Colin Marshall and I had in a Seoul cafe a couple of months ago.

We both share a love for roaming cities and writing about them, but only Colin is blessed with an uncanny gift for maieutics, a truly clear mind, and a spellbinding voice. If you enjoy that interview as much as I did, praise him. And that annoying gibberish of mine? Don't try to put it on a hot summer day, a night unnecessarily shrunk by insignificant World Cup games, or even my Frenchness.

So take a cup of coffee, and come sit down with us.

define: lexicon

If you can't read my dragedies in French, now you can at least watch parts of their lexicon. 

To start with, three essential definitions to learn by heart (I give you 1:11):

Entretien - Stephane MOT - Impressions Papier Hanji

Entretien avec / Interview with
Benjamin Joinau, Editions L'Atelier des Cahiers

Ce bref entretien vidéo avec l'éditeur d'"Impressions papier hanji" a été enregistré au coeur de l'été séoulite, et au coeur de la capitale (à Seochon, Jongno-gu - mon quartier préféré et le nouveau repaire de Benjamin). Ambiance sombre, mais il est question 'de Vermis Seoulis', de hantise, de fantastique, et du côté obscur de la ville.

This short video interview with the publisher of 'Impressions papier hanji' was recorded in the middle of the summer and in the heart of Seoul (Seochon, Jongno-gu, my favorite neighborhood and Benjamin's new lair). I'm at my Bela Lugosi best, but this is about 'de Vermis Seoulis', haunting places, and the dark side of Seoul.

"Breves" et "L'Annee du Chien" disponibles au format ebook

("Year of the dog" now available on ebook)

Après L'Atelier des Cahiers*, L'Atelier du Gué a décidé d'étendre ses publications au format numérique, à commencer par la revue Brèves, anthologie permanente de la nouvelle depuis 1981.

Le numéro 82 est donc disponible et avec lui "L'Année du Chien", un petit os à ronger que je vous ai reservi deux ans plus tard dans "dragédies"**:


Mon troisième "atelier" (Seoul Writers Workshop) envisage également le format ebook, mais pour le moment tout reste sur papier.

Je ne vous cache pas que l'idée m'a plus qu'effleuré pour "dragédies", un opuscule engagé dans une partie de billard à trois bandes entre la France, la Corée et les States.

A suivre.

** rassure-toi Brigitte, si ça se passe bien en Corée, il ne s'agit pas d'un os de chien
