The Vegetarian PDF

“Surreal...[A] mesmerizing mix of sex and violence...vivid, chiseled...Like a cursed madwoman in classical myth, Yeong-hye seems both eerily prophetic and increasingly unhinged.” —Alexandra Alter, The New York Times“Ferocious...[Han Kang] has been rightfully celebrated as a visionary in South Korea… Han’s glorious treatments of agency, personal choice, submission and subversion find form in the parable. There is something about short literary forms – this novel is under 200 pages – in which the allegorical and the violent gain special potency from their small packages... Ultimately, though, how could we not go back to Kafka? More than ‘The Metamorphosis,’ Kafka’s journals and ‘A Hunger Artist’ haunt this text.” —Porochista Khakpour, New York Times Book Review“Astonishing...Kang viscerally explores the limits of what a human brain and body can endure, and the strange beauty that can be found in even the most extreme forms of renunciation.” —Entertainment WeeklySometimes how a book or a film puzzles you—how it may mystify even its own creator—is the main point. The way it keeps slithering out of your grasp. The way it chats with you in the parlor even as it drags something nameless and heavy through the woods out back….That’s the spirit in which to approachThe Vegetarian…The Vegetarian has an eerie universality that gets under your skin and stays put irrespective of nation or gender.”—Laura Miller,“This book is both terrifying and terrific.”—Lauren GroffThe Vegetarian was slim and spiky and extremely disturbing, and I find myself thinking about it weeks after I finished.Jennifer Weiner,“The Vegetarian is one ofthe best novels I’ve read in years.It’s incredible, daring, and stunningly moving. I loved it.”—Laura van den BergA short novel of sexuality and madness that deserves its great success.”—Ian McEwan“If its true you are what you read, prepare to be sliced and severed, painted and slapped and fondled and broken to bits, left shocked and reeling on the other side of this stunning, dark star of a book.”—Amelia Gray“It takes a gifted storyteller to get you feeling ill at ease in your own body. Yet Han Kang often set me squirming with her first novel in English, at once claustrophobic and transcendent… Yeong-hye’s compulsions feel more like a force of nature… A sea like that, rippling with unknowable shadow, looks all but impossible to navigate—but I’d let Han Kang take the helm any time.”—Chicago Tribune“Provocative...shocking.”—The Washington Post[An] utterly deserving winner of this years Man Booker International Prize...with haunting, almost hallucinatory beauty.—Entertainment Weekly, Best Books of 2016 so far“This is a deceptive novel, its canvas much larger than the mild social satire that one initially imagines. Kang has bigger issues to raise… The matter of female autonomy assumes urgency and poignancy.”—The Boston GlobeCompelling...[A] seamless union of the visceral and the surreal.”—Los Angeles Review of BooksIndebted to Kafka, this story of a South Korean womans radical transformation, which begins after she forsakes meat, will have you reading with your hand over your mouth in shock. —O, the Oprah Magazine“If you love books that grab you by the throat and keep you wide-eyed and shocked throughout, you’ve got to pick up Han Kang’sThe Vegetarian.”—EW.comA complex, terrifying look at how seemingly simple decisions can affect multiple lives...In a world where women’s bodies are constantly under scrutiny, the protagonist’s desire to disappear inside of herself feels scarily familiar.—VanityFair.comA sharply written allegory that extends far beyond its surreal premise to unexpected depths.”—The Millions“Visceral and hypnotic.”—Michele Filgate“An elegant tale, in three parts, of a woman whose sudden turn to veganism disrupts her family and exposes the worst human appetites and impulses… [a] stripped-down, thoughtful narrative… about human psychology and physiology.”—Huffington PostAdventurous readers will be blown away by Han Kang’sThe Vegetarian, in which a once-submissive Korean wife’s compulsion to stop eating meat spirals out of control. This moving story engages complicated questions about desire, guilt, obligation and madness.”—MORE Magazine“This elegant-yet-twisted horror story is all about power and its relationship with identity. Its chilling in the best ways, so buckle in and turn down the lights.”—“The Vegetarian is the first—there will be more, let’s hope—of Han Kang’s novels to arrive in the United States…The style is realistic and psychological, and denies us the comfort that might be wrung from a fairy tale or a myth of metamorphosis. We all like to read about girls swapping their fish tails for legs or their unwrinkled arms for branches, but—at the risk of stating the obvious—a person cannot become a potted bit of green foodstuff. That Yeong-hye seems not to know this makes her dangerous, and doomed.”—Harper’s Magazine“This haunting, original tale explores the eros, isolation and outer limits of a gripping metamorphosis that happens in plain sight… Han Kang has written a remarkable novel with universal themes about isolation, obsession, duty and desire.” —Minneapolis Star TribuneComplex and strange...Hans prose moves swiftly, riveted on the scene unfolding in a way that makes this story compulsively readable...this is a book that demands you to ask important questions, and its vivid images will be hard to shake. This is a book that will stay with you.—St. Louis Post-Dispatch“Brutally yet beautifully explores the gap between one person’s expression and another’s reception.”—Harvard CrimsonThe Vegetarian is incredibly fresh and gripping, due in large part to the unforgettable narrative structure... Han Kang has created a multi-leveled, well-crafted story that does what all great stories do: immediately connects the unique situation within these pages to the often painful experience of living.—The Rumpus“Disquieting, thought-provoking and precisely informed.” —Shelf Awareness“A horror story in its depiction of the unknowability of others—of the sudden feeling that youve never actually known someone close to you….Its three-part structure is brilliant, gradually digging deeper and deeper into darker and darker places
