This Korean novel was only recently translated and concerns a psychological decline of a woman (mainly viewed thru three perspectives: husband, brother-in-law [a bit pathetic but for me came off the best], sister). We get hints problems were around for some time behind a bland facade but things started with "a dream" that led her to choose to become a vegetarian. Meat and her husband's body suddenly disgusted her. Certain interactions with her family were catalyst for two major breakdowns; were they inevitable? Whole thing is metaphorical and overall well-written though think it could have ended ten pages sooner.
