This is a novel by Kim Young-ha, published in 1996. It uses fantasy techniques to portray death in a sophisticated and detailed manner. It shows that death is not something dark and gloomy, but something that is close to people’s everyday life.  

1996년에 발표된 김영하의 장편소설이다. 이 작품은 환상의 기법을 사용하여 죽음을 정교하고도 구체적으로 묘사한다. 죽음은 어둡고 음습한 것이 아니라 일상에 가까이 있는 것임을 보여준다.
