ANTON HUR is a translator and author born in Stockholm and resides in Seoul. His translations include Bora Chung's Cursed Bunny, Sang Young Park's Love in the Big City, Kyung-Sook Shin's Violets, and Baek Sehee's I Want to Die but I Want to Eat Tteokbokki. He has also been nominated for the International Booker Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award Barrios Prize, and the International Dublin Literary Award, and has won numerous grants from PEN America, English PEN, LTI Korea, and the Daesan Foundation.

Cursed Bunny is a genre-defying collection of short stories by Korean author Bora Chung. Blurring the lines between magical realism, horror, and science-fiction, Chung uses elements of the fantastic and surreal to address the very real horrors and cruelties of patriarchy and capitalism in modern society.

Anton Hur’s translation skilfully captures the way Chung’s prose effortlessly glides from being terrifying to wryly humorous. Winner of a PEN/Heim Grant and shortlisted for the 2022 Booker International Prize.
