2005년에 출간된 박민규의 소설집이다. 2003년 여름부터 2005년 봄까지 쓴 30편의 작품 중 여러 계간지에 발표한 10편을 골라서 출간한 것이다. 표제작을 비롯하여 <고마워, 과연 너구리야>, <아, 하세요 펠리컨>, <야쿠르트 아줌마>, <갑을고시원 체류기> 등 모두 10편의 단편이 수록되어 있다. 작가는 시끄러운 냉장고, 버스를 타고 떠나는 우주여행, 가난때문에 지하철의 '푸시맨'이 된 고등학생 등의 이야기를 통해 하층민의 삶에 대한 애정을 드러내면서 동시에 자본주의를 비판하고 있다.

This collection of short stories by Park Min gyu was published in 2005. It contains ten short stories, originally published in literary magazines, that were selected from among thirty stories written by the author between the summer of 2003 and the spring of 2005. It includes the short stories “Thank you, it’s really a raccoon,” “Please Go ‘Ah,’ Pelican,” “Ajumma Yakult,” and “Sojourn at Gabeul Goshiwon.” Through his zany stories about noisy refrigerators, space travel on a bus, and a high school student-turned-subway “pushman,” the author delivers a critique of capitalism, as well as affection for the downtrodden.
