About This Book

Published as part of the Hollym Corporation Publishers' series of short stories by well-known authors, "Tower of Ants" reflects the lives of modern people in times of desolation. The story features a man who is teased by the ants which have built their own society in his house. The main character is a copy writer in an advertising company. Ants frequently appear in his space and afflict him. He decides to fight against the insects, but to no avail. The man realizes that he also lives a similar life to that of the insect, a life that is stripped of individuality and freedom only to serve as part of a larger unit, to keep the system working. In the end, he succumbs to the collective system of ants and waits for them lying with sugared water applied to all over his body.

The author Choe In-ho, born in 1945, is a noted contemporary writer who authored many bestsellers and serious novels. His other works include "The Stranger's Room," dealing with alienation in an industrial society and "The March of the Idiots," which was transformed into a big hit film in the 1970s.
