A head pops out of the toilet, a woman gets pregnant from birth control pills - South Korean Booker Prize nominee Bora Chung's short stories are full of horror, inspired by her own lonely life.

An academic specialising in Slavic literature, Chung was considered a "genre writer" and excluded from South Korea's mainstream literary scene. Until recently, she was relatively unknown to local readers.
