About the Book

This fiction is based on the writer's personal experiences of traveling and flamenco, and his view of literature and art. An image leaflet has been laid on the bookshelf in the author’s study since he got it free in the year of 2000 in an art gallery located in the downtown of Portland. The image, which is on the front cover of this book, reminds him of Portland, a city of light and shade, where he happened to see a street flamenco show for the first time in his life. Had he not seen it in Portland, he would not have written this autobiographic story. At that time a flamenco dancer named ‘Helena’ loving Korean paintings was there in the city. Therefore now a literary work on flamenco, art and traveling titled ‘Landscapes Invisible’ is here.
