2009년에 출간된 김연수의 소설집이다. 2005년 봄부터 2009년 여름까지 발표한 단편들을 묶어서 출간한 것이다. 표제작을 비롯하여 <기억할 만한 지나침>, <당신들 모두 서른 살이 되었을 때>, <달로 간 코미디언> 등 모두 9편의 작품이 수록되어 있다. 작가는 미세하게 무너지고 균열을 일으키는 인간의 일상과 세계에 주목하고 그 세계 속에 존재하는 사람들의 이야기를 담아내고 있다.

Published in 2009, this collection by Kim Yeonsu includes nine short stories released from 2005 to 2009, such as “Memorable Excessiveness,” “When You All Turn Thirty,” and “The Comedian Who Went to the Moon.” The writer focuses on small crevices created in people’s daily lives, in their relationships, and in the world.
