Product Description

Cursed Bunny is a genre-defying collection of short stories by Korean author Bora Chung. Blurring the lines between magical realism, horror, and science-fiction, Chung uses elements of the fantastic and surreal to address the very real horrors and cruelties of patriarchy and capitalism in modern society.

Anton Hur's translation skilfully captures the way Chung's prose effortlessly glides from being terrifying to wryly humorous. Winner of a PEN/Heim Grant and shortlisted for the 2022 Booker International Prize.

Review
'Whether borrowing from fable, folktale, speculative fiction, science fiction, or horror, Chung's stories corkscrew toward devastating conclusions―bleak, yes, but also wise and honest about the nightmares of contemporary life. Don't read this book while eating―but don't skip these unflinching, intelligent stories, either.' – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

'While the stories in Cursed Bunny by Bora Chung blend elements of horror, fantasy and the surreal, each is viscerally rooted in the real fears and pressures of everyday life.' – International Booker Prize judges

'Chung debuts with a well-crafted and horrifying collection of dark fairy tales, stark revenge fables, and disturbing body horror. Clever plot twists and sparkling prose abound. Chung's work is captivating and terrifying.' – Publishers Weekly

'Cool, brilliantly demented K-horror-just the way I like it!' – Ed Park, author of Personal Days

'The stories not only take their revenge, but also love you, and comfort you. You'll end up completely endeared to this fascinating collection!' – Kyung-sook Shin, New York Times Bestselling author of Please Look After Mom and Violets<
