Harry Hartog's review

This book was all kinds of whack… and I loved it! I gaged, cringed, raged, threw it down and paced my living room, and my god I could not get enough. Raging feminist horror but in a subtle something-is-wrong-but-what? kinda way? Count me in! This book with make you seethe with rage, and by the end of it I was ready to take on the world with Ji-won. Recommend to anyone who likes Yōko Ogowa, Ottessa Moshfegh etc. - Lauren, Subscriptions

Publisher's description

Boy Parts meets My Sister, the Serial Killer this feminist psychological horror is crawling under reader's skin...

Ji-won's life tumbles into disarray in the wake of her Appa's extramarital affair and subsequent departure. Her mother, distraught. Her younger sister, hurt and confused. Her college freshman grades, failing.

Her dreams, horrifying... yet enticing. In them, Ji-won walks through bloody rooms full of bue eyes. Salivatingly perfect male eyes. Eyes the same shape and shade as George's, who is Umma's obnoxious new boyfriend. George has already overstayed his welcome in her family's claustrophobic apartment. He brags about his puffed-up consulting job, ogles Asian waitresses while dining out, and acts condescending toward Ji-won and her sister as if he deserves all of Umma's fawning adoration. No, George doesn't deserve anything from her family. Ji-won will make sure of that.

Ji-won's hunger and rage need to be sated.
