“This is the story that I’ve once heard” – says Bora Chung, the South Korean writer, and then takes us on a journey through her stories. About a head popping out of a toilet, cursed lamp in the shape of a bunny and a fox bleeding gold.
Przeklęty królik (Cursed Bunny) is a global phenomenon, Anton Hur’s English translation was nominated for the International Booker Prize and National Book Award. No wonder: Chung’s stories are a curious blend of grotesque, parables and folklore, with a feminist twist. A mixture that at times shocks or puts off, yet always gets the reader addicted.
