2019년에 출간된 박상영의 연작소설이다. 표제작인 <대도시의 사랑법>외에 <재희>, <우럭 한 점 우주의 맛>, <늦은 우기의 바캉스>가 수록되어 있다. 한국문학에서 중요한 주제로 부각된 '퀴어'를 다루는 이 작품집은 청년 세대의 삶과 사랑을 '퀴어서사'라는 독법으로 풀어나가고 있다. 이 중 <대도시의 사랑법>과 <늦은 우기의 바캉스>는 직접적으로 연결되어 HIV에 감염된 주인공과 클럽 바텐더 규호의 사랑과 이별을 담고 있다. 자칫 가볍게 보일 수 있는 성의 면모를 작품의 매력으로 끌어올리는 작품으로 평가받는다.

This novel by Sang Young Park was published in 2019. Composed of linked short stories, the novel includes “Jaehee,” “A Bite of Rock Fish, Taste the Universe,” “Late Rainy Season Vacation,” and the title story “Love in the Big City.” A work of queer fiction, which is an emerging genre in Korean literature, it explores the lives of a generation of young adults, offering a frank and engaging look at sexuality. Two directly linked vignettes, “Love in the Big City” and “Late Rainy Season Vacation,” depict the relationship between the HIV-positive narrator and Gyuho, a club bartender.
