#About the event
Duration: 60 minutes
Welcome to the sinister world of Cursed Bunny. In this chillingly good International Booker-shortlisted collection by South Korean sensation Bora Chung, body horror and hauntings collide with fables and magical realism to reveal the true terrors of our age: capitalism, patriarchy and unchecked power. In conversation with award-winning short fiction writer Helen Marshall, Chung breaks down her genre-defying literary style and scalpel-sharp critique.
Cursed Bunny, a collection of Bora Chung’s science fiction short stories translated into English by Anton Hur, was short-listed for the International Booker Prize 2022. Her other major works, To Meet Her and Red Sword, will also be translated by Anton Hur.
