Bae Suah "Untold Night and Day"
Untold Night and Day is a hallucinatory feat of storytelling from one of the most radical voices in contemporary Korean literature.
Paperback, 160 pages.
Finishing her last shift at Seoul's only audio theatre for the blind, Kim Ayami heads into the night with her former boss, searching for a missing friend. The following day, she looks after a visiting poet, a man who is not as he seems. Unfolding over a night and a day in the sweltering summer heat, their world's order gives way to chaos, the edges of reality start to fray, and the past intrudes on the present in increasingly disorientating ways.
