2017년에 출간된 김영하의 소설집이다. 표제작을 비롯하여 <아이를 찾습니다>(2014년 김유정문학상 수상), <옥수수와 나>(2012년 이상문학상 대상), <최은지와 박인수>, <신의 장난>등 모두 7편의 단편이 수록되어 있다. <옥수수와 나>, <최은지와 박인수> 등 2014년 이전에 발표한 작품들에서는 무언가를 상실한 인물들이 불안를 감추기 위해 자기기만과 합리화로 만족을 꾸며내고 있다면, '세월호 사건'이 일어난 2014년 이후의 작품인 <아이를 찾습니다>에는 필사적으로 현재를 살아가는 인물들이 등장한다.

Published in 2017, this short story collection by Kim Young-ha introduces seven of his stories. The collection includes “Choi Eunji and Park Insu,” “God’s Prank,” “Missing Child” (for which he received the Kim Yu-jeong Literary Award in 2014), and “Corn and I” (for which he received the Yi Sang Literary Award in 2012). “Corn and I” and “Choi Eunji and Park Insu” were released before 2014, and both stories deal with the characters going through self-denial and self-justification in order to hide their anxiety and fear. In “Missing Child” which was written after the Sewol tragedy, he introduces characters who struggle to survive in spite of ordeals and trials in life.
