Bae Suah

Bae Suah is a highly acclaimed contemporary Korean author, and has been described as 'one of the most radical and experimental writers working in Korea today'. After making her literary debut in 1993 with the short story 'The Dark Room of Nineteen Eighty-Eight', she went on to write several novels and short story collections, and has translated numerous books from German, including works by WG Sebald, Franz Kafka and Jenny Erpenbeck. She received the Hanguk Ilbo literary prize in 2003, and the Tongseo literary prize in 2004. Her novel Nowhere to be Found was one of her first books to appear in English, and was longlisted for a PEN Translation Prize and the Best Translated Book Award.
