JUNE’S BOOK: Cursed Bunny by Bora Chung, trans. Anton Hur


From the publisher, Honford Star:

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.

Bora Chung has written three novels and three collections of short stories. She has an MA in Russian and East European area studies from Yale University and a PhD in Slavic literature from Indiana University. She currently teaches Russian language and literature and science fiction studies at Yonsei University and translates modern literary works from Russian and Polish into Korean.

Anton Hur was born in Stockholm, Sweden. He won a PEN Translates award for Kang Kyeong-ae's The Underground Village. He lives in Seoul.

UK Publisher, Honford Star, publish fantastic literature from East Asia – working with talented translators to make important and brilliant works accessible to English-language readers.

Book available to buy in-store and online .
