    Bora Chung et al / 정보라 / 2021 / -

    Cursed Bunny is a genre-defying collection of short stories by Korean author Bora Chung. Blurring the lines between magical realism, horror, and science-fiction, Chung uses elements of the fantastic and surreal to address the very real horrors and cruelties of patriarchy and capitalism in modern society. Anton Hur’s translation skilfully captures the way Chung’s prose effortlessly glides from being terrifying to wryly humorous. Winner of a PEN/Heim Grant.

  • Cursed Bunny
    English(English) Book

    Bora Chung et al / 정보라 / 2022 / -

    SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BOOKER PRIZE AND WINNER OF A PEN/HEIM TRANSLATION GRANT "Cool, brilliantly demented K-horror—just the way I like it!" —Ed Park, author of Personal Days A stunning, wildly original debut from a rising star of Korean literature—surreal, chilling fables that take on the patriarchy, capitalism, and the reign of big tech with absurdist humor and a (sometimes literal) bite From an author never before published in the United States, Cursed Bunny is unique and imaginative, blending horror, sci-fi, fairytales, and speculative fiction into stories that defy categorization. By turns thought-provoking and stomach-turning, here monsters take the shapes of furry woodland creatures and danger lurks in unexpected corners of everyday apartment buildings. But in this unforgettable collection, translated by the acclaimed Anton Hur, Chung’s absurd, haunting universe could be our own, illuminating the ills of contemporary society. “The Head” follows a woman haunted by her own bodily waste. “The Embodiment” takes us into a dystopian gynecology office where a pregnant woman is told that she must find a father for her baby or face horrific consequences. Another story follows a young monster, forced into underground fight rings without knowing the force of his own power. The titular fable centers on a cursed lamp in the approachable shape of a rabbit, fit for a child’s bedroom but for its sinister capabilities. No two stories are alike, and readers will be torn whether to race through them or savor Chung’s wit and frenetic energy on every page. Cursed Bunny is a book that screams to be read late into the night and passed on to the nearest set of hands the very next day. Source : https://www.workman.com/products/cursed-bunny/paperback

  • Der Fluch des Hasen
    German(Deutsch) Book

    Bora Chung et al / 정보라 / 2023 / -

    Bei der Lektüre dieser Stories von Bora Chung läuft es der Rezensentin Maha El Hissy mehr als einmal eiskalt den Rücken runter. Jede Geschichte startet mit einer alltäglichen Situation und wird schnell zum Albtraum, so El Hissy. So wächst aus der Kloschüssel einer Protagonistin ein Kopf aus Exkrementen heran, in einer anderen hört die Periode einer Frau gar nicht mehr auf und sie wird ungewollt schwanger, erfahren wir. Diese Geschichten verweisen für die Kritikerin auf den täglichen Horror, den Frau in der "patriarchalen, heteronormen Gesellschaftsordnung" ertragen müssen. source: https://www.perlentaucher.de/buch/bora-chung/der-fluch-des-hasen.html
