Deploying the fantastical and surreal to address very real issues of patriarchy and capitalism, the stories that comprise Chung's dazzling collection are vivid riots of unpredictability and invention.
Shortlisted for the International Booker Prize 2022
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.
