Publisher Description

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.

“As a short story collection of mostly twisted and darkly comical magical realism, Cursed Bunny was a perfect pick for my taste. It was absurd from the first sentence and then ebbing between levels of tragedy throughout. Reminded me of my favorite Samanta Schweblin stories, perhaps even better. 🐇”

“Another collection of quite gross and fairytale-esque short stories with a touch of creepy folk elements and body horror to them. Read if you liked Enriquez's ''The dangers of smoking in bed''! By the way, am I the only one that when reading the story ''Cursed Bunny'' thought about Jujutsu Kaisen? No? Maybe it's my hyperfixation idk...”
““… If I could make one wish I want to be just a little bit happier If I’m too happy I will miss the sadness.””
