A Most Ambiguous Sunday, and Other Stories

Library of Korean Literature Series
Jung Young-moon
Translated by Jung Young-moon, Yewon Jung, Inrae You Vinciguerra, and Louis Vinciguerra

Considered an eccentric in the traditional Korean literary world, Jung Young-moon’s short stories have nonetheless won numerous readers both in Korea and abroad, most often drawing comparisons to Kafka. Adopting strange, warped, unstable characters and drawing heavily on the literature of the absurd, Jung’s stories nonetheless do not wallow in darkness, despair, or negativity. Instead, we find a world in which the bizarre and terrifying are often put to comic use, even in direst of situations, and point toward a sort of redemption to be found precisely in the “weirdest” and most unsettling parts of life . . .
