This is a short story collection by Lee Kiho, published in 2018. The seven short stories in this collection feature characters whose names appear in the title. Through the lives of these characters, who are victims but also feel ashamed of their victimhood, the author poses questions about the life of the weak.

2018년에 출간된 이기호의 소설집이다. 표제작을 비롯해 <최미진은 어디로>, <나를 혐오하게될 박창수에게>, <오래전 김숙희는> 등 모두 7편이 수록되어 있다. 작품들은 고유한 이름을 가진 주인공들이 등장하는데, 이들이 피해자이면서 오히려 부끄러움을 느끼면서 살아가는 모습을 통해 약자의 삶에 대해 질문을 던진다.
