Author: Han Kang
Before the nightmares began, Yeong-hye and her husband lived an ordinary, controlled life. But the dreams torture her, driving Yeong-hye to purge her mind and renounce eating meat altogether.
It’s a small act of independence, but it interrupts her marriage and sets into motion an increasingly grotesque chain of events at home. As her husband, her brother-in-law and sister each fight to reassert their control, Yeong-hye obsessively defends the choice that’s become sacred to her.
