Inah has been having nightmares. Nightmares of fish bones, fractals, and a marriage that ended under some unnamed violence. Walking the night streets with a man she has known for years, whose feelings for her are bound up with his intense longing to live as a woman, the fragile bond of their relationship threatens to shatter. Internationally acclaimed author Han Kang directs her unflinching gaze on the painful complexities of damage and recovery, questioning what it is we want from ourselves and each other, and whether there are some things that are truly irreparable.

 

HAN KANG was born in 1970 in South Korea. In 1993 she made her literary debut as a poet, and was first published as a novelist in 1994. A participant in the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa, Han has won the Man Booker International Prize, the Yi Sang Literary Award, the Today’s Young Artist Award, and the Manhae Prize for Literature.

 

DEBORAH SMITH was born in Doncaster in 1987. She has translated three books by South Korean author Han Kang, including The Vegetarian, Human Acts, and The White Book, and four by Bae Suah, including the forthcoming Unknown Nights and Days. She founded Tilted Axis Press in 2015, publishing contemporary writing from across Asia, and is currently mentoring emerging translators from Korean and writing about translation, failure, feminism and ant-i-capitalism.
