Prize-winning author In-ho Choi paints a dizzying portrait of what living in a modern, self-centered society entails in his breakthrough short story Tower of Ants. The plot centers around a young man who is going nowhere in his 9 to 5 advertising job when, one day, his apartment is suddenly infested with ants. The story soon becomes a battle for sanity as the thousands upon thousands of insects slowly take over the man’s life, his apartment and his mind.
