Synopsis

'As cryptic and compelling as a fever dream... Bae Suah is one of the most unique and adroit literary voices working today' Sharlene Teo


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.


Untold Night and Day is a hallucinatory feat of storytelling from one of the most radical voices in contemporary Korean literature.


'Highly original... Once I finished it, much of it slipped into my subconscious' Daily Telegraph
