Translated from the Korean by Anton Hur
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.
Chung’s work can be defined as a gripping amalgamation of absurdist, unrealistic stories that draw on science fiction, horror and fantasy. In a strange sense, they are page-turners making readers anxious to know more about what’s to come but at the same time dreading to see the end.
