“The Impossible Fairy Tale” by Han Yujoo

impossible fairy tale cover

This week, I reviewed the new novel The Impossible Fairy Tale from South Korean author Han Yujoo. The review appears in the online magazine Words Without Borders and can be read online.

It is a strange novel, concerned mostly with story telling and how that process is conveyed in writing. With that said, it is also very brutal and visceral. Fans of homicidal children and Maurice Blanchot should surely check it out.
