Han Kang on the Horror of Humanity


In this 2019 Louisiana Channel interview, Man Booker–winning author Han Kang speaks about the origins of her writing from her love of books to her questions about humanity. “When we are confronted by the horror of humanity, we have to question ourselves,” says Kang. Her new novel, Greek Lessons (Hogarth, 2023), translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith and Emily Yae Won, is featured in Page One in the May/June issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
