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.

By the internationally acclaimed author of Cursed Bunny, in another thrilling translation from the Korean by Anton Hur, Your Utopia is full of tales of loss and discovery, idealism and dystopia, death and immortality. “Nothing concentrates the mind like Chung’s terrors, which will shrivel you to a bouillon cube of your most primal instincts” (Vulture), yet these stories are suffused with Chung’s inimitable wry humor and surprisingly tender moments, too—often between unexpected subjects.

Chung’s writing is “haunting, funny, gross, terrifying—and yet when we reach the end, we just want more” (Alexander Chee). If you haven’t yet experienced the fruits of this singular imagination, Your Utopia is waiting.
