Mr B's review

I read this in one hypnotised afternoon, and it continues to simmer and resonate. Its narrator, having grown up with the memory of an older sister who died only hours after birth, finds her way around a foreign city, where her own voice becomes inseparable from that which her sister never had. Lyrical yet simple, the new story by the Booker International winning author of ‘The Vegetarian’ is a meditative joy which feels like nothing else you’ll encounter this year.

Description

From the winner of the Man Booker International Prize for The Vegetarian

From the author of The Vegetarian and Human Acts comes a book like no other. The White Book is a meditation on colour, beginning with a list of white things. It is a book about mourning, rebirth and the tenacity of the human spirit. It is a stunning investigation of the fragility, beauty and strangeness of life.

Translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith.
