Winner of the 2016 Man Booker International Prize

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY 
The 
New York Times Book Review • Publisher's Weekly •  Buzzfeed •  Entertainment Weekly •  Time •  Wall Street Journal •  Bustle •  Elle •  The Economist •  Slate •  The Huffington Post • The St. Louis Dispatch •  Electric Literature

Featured in the 
New York Times selection of "15 remarkable books by women that are shaping the way we read and write fiction in the 21st century" 

A beautiful, unsettling novel about rebellion and taboo, violence and eroticism, and the twisting metamorphosis of a soul

 

Before the nightmares began, Yeong-hye and her husband lived an ordinary, controlled life. But the dreams—invasive images of blood and brutality—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. Soon their attempts turn desperate, subjecting first her mind, and then her body, to ever more intrusive and perverse violations, sending Yeong-hye spiraling into a dangerous, bizarre estrangement, not only from those closest to her, but also from herself. 

 

Celebrated by critics around the world, 
The Vegetarian is a darkly allegorical, Kafka-esque tale of power, obsession, and one woman’s struggle to break free from the violence both without and within her.

Grotesque and amazing both at once
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 07.09.2017

She is the embodiment of the average person. Married to a man out of practical reasons and working at an office. Neither is she pretty nor is she ugly. She is living an absolutely average life in South Korea. One day seemingly out of the blue she decides to stop eating meat. Her behavior gets weirder every day. Her family thin... She is the embodiment of the average person. Married to a man out of practical reasons and working at an office. Neither is she pretty nor is she ugly. She is living an absolutely average life in South Korea. One day seemingly out of the blue she decides to stop eating meat. Her behavior gets weirder every day. Her family thinks her completely crazy and admits her to an asylum after she tried to kill herself at a family occasion. From this point on Han Kangs’ story “the vegetarian” becomes more and more absurd, grotesque and at times even disgusting. The line between normality and insanity blurs and in the end you won’t even know for yourself what’s “normal” anymore. Kang persuades with a great spelling style that reminds of Kafka. A story with great depths and a lot of surprises. A story you’ve been waiting for without knowing it.
