The vegetarian : a novel by Kang Han( Book )

34 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 her 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, 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."--Front book jacket flap

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

From the internationally bestselling author of THE VEGETARIAN, a "rare and astonishing" (The Observer) portrait of political unrest and the universal struggle for justice In the midst of a violent student uprising in South Korea, a young boy named Dong-ho is shockingly killed. The story of this tragic episode unfolds in a sequence of interconnected chapters as the victims and the bereaved encounter suppression, denial, and the echoing agony of the massacre. From Dong-ho's best friend who meets his own fateful end; to an editor struggling against censorship; to a prisoner and a factory worker, each suffering from traumatic memories; and to Dong-ho's own grief-stricken mother; and through their collective heartbreak and acts of hope is the tale of a brutalized people in search of a voice. An award-winning, controversial bestseller, HUMAN ACTS is a timeless, pointillist portrait of an historic event with reverberations still being felt today, by turns tracing the harsh reality of oppression and the resounding, extraordinary poetry of humanity
Die Vegetarierin Roman by Kang Han( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein seltsam verstörendes, hypnotisierendes Buch über eine Frau, die laut ihrem Ehemann an Durchschnittlichkeit kaum zu übertreffen ist - bis sie eines Tages beschließt, kein Fleisch mehr zu essen. >>Bevor meine Frau zur Vegetarierin wurde, hielt ich sie für nichts Besonderes. Bei unserer ersten Begegnung fand ich sie nicht einmal attraktiv. Mittelgroß, ein Topfschnitt, irgendwo zwischen kurz und lang, gelbliche unreine Haut, Schlupflider und dominante Wangenknochen. So fühlte ich mich weder von ihr angezogen noch abgestoßen und sah daher keinen Grund, sie nicht zu heiraten.<< Yeong-Hye und ihr Ehemann sind ganz gewöhnliche Leute. Er geht beflissen seinem Bürojob nach und hegt keinerlei Ambitionen. Sie ist eine zwar leidenschaftslose, aber pflichtbewusste Hausfrau. Die angenehme Eintönigkeit ihrer Ehe wird jäh gefährdet, als Yeong-Hye beschließt, sich fortan ausschließlich vegetarisch zu ernähren und alle tierischen Produkte aus dem Haushalt entfernt. >>Ich hatte einen Traum<<, so ihre einzige Erklärung. Ein kleiner Akt der Unabhängigkeit, aber ein fataler, denn in einem Land wie Südkorea, in dem strenge soziale Normen herrschen, gilt der Vegetarismus als subversiv. Doch damit nicht genug. Bald nimmt Yeong-Hyes passive Rebellion immer groteskere Ausmaße an. Sie, die niemals gerne einen BH getragen hat, fängt an, sich in der Öffentlichkeit zu entblößen und von einem Leben als Pflanze zu träumen. Bis sich ihre gesamte Familie gegen sie wendet. Die Vegetarierin ist eine kafkaeske Geschichte in drei Akten über Scham und Begierde, Macht und Obsession sowie unsere zum Scheitern verurteilten Versuche, den Anderen zu verstehen, der ja doch, wie man selbst, Gefangener im eigenen Leib ist. Der Roman wurde mit dem Man Booker International Prize 2016 ausgezeichnet. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
