2013년 출간된 김언수의 단편소설집이다. 표제작인 <잽>을 포함하여 9편의 단편소설이 수록되어 있다. 현대인들의 불안과 소외, 권태와 피로를 가감없이 드러낸다. 김언수 특유의 블랙 유머와 리듬감 있는 문체를 통해 웃기면서도 슬픈 이야기들을 담고 있다.

Published in 2013, Jab! contains nine short stories by Kim Un-su, including the title story. At times funny and at times sad, the short stories take an unflinching look at the anxiety, alienation, boredom, and fatigue of contemporary existence, showcasing Kim’s unique black humor and rhythmic prose.
