Through a series of seemingly minor juxtapositions of the familiar and the strange, K, the protagonist of Another Man’s City, gradually realizes he is inside a Matrix-like reality, populated by shape-shifting characters, and is living a virtual-reality narrative manipulated by an entity referred to as both the “Invisible Hand” and “Big Brother.”

From mundane and quotidian events, Ch’oe In-Ho steadily builds an unreal and uncanny edifice—a virtual world reminiscent of Kafka or Orwell, with echoes of The Truman Show and of Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Unconsoled.
