2014년에 출간된 김혜진의 장편소설이다. 사회로부터 소외되고 아무 것도 가진 것 없는 두 남녀의 사랑을 다루고 있다. 과거와 미래에 대한 관심을 끊고 오직 현재에만 몰입함으로써 신체가 느끼는 감각과 감정을 극도로 발전시키고 있다는 평가를 받는다.

Published in 2014, Central Station by Kim Hye-jin deals with the love between a man and woman, both of whom are alienated from society and possess nothing. By removing all references to the past and present and focusing entirely on the present day, the novel gives a heightened description of the body’s emotions and sensations.
