Suah Bae



Bae Suah is one of the most highly acclaimed and innovative contemporary South Korean authors. Her novels and stories are influenced by the German authors she translates – including Kafka, W G Sebald and Jenny Erpenbeck, but also by the authors Clarice Lispecter and Borges, et al. She has gained cult status, with an extremely devoted and enthusiastic fanbase. Her own themes often address ‘the sensuous interpolation of past and present, of I and thou, of life and literature’. Suah’s novels and stories are gifted to us in English by the most notable and award-winning translators: Man Booker Prize-winner Deborah Smith, Sora Kim Russell and Janet Hong.
