SUMMARY 흰 By Han Kang

Ed a mere two hours after birth A fragmented exploration of white things the swaddling bands that were also her shroud the breast milk she did not live to drink the blank page on which the narrator herself attempts to reconstruct the story unfold in a powerfully poetic distillation As she walks the unfamiliar snow streaked streets lined by buildings. Such a difficult book to describe difficult to review A very unconventional narrative but the writing is just gorgeous Sad at times a reflection on the sister that she never knew using the color white Descriptions of the feelings these things invoke politics reminders of the past present Meaningful Things that make one ponder ask uestionsLace curtain Is it because of some billowing whiteness within us unsullied inviolate that our encounters with objects so pristine never fail to leave us movedBreath cloud On cold morningschat first White cloud of escaping breath is proof that we are living Proof of our bodies warmthHandkerchief A single handkerchief drifted down slowest of all finally to the ground Like a bird with it s wings half furled Like a soul tentatively sounding out a place it might alightEach item is followed by a descriptive meaning all beauti

흰 By Han Kang

From the winner of the Man Booker International Prize for The Vegetarian Both the most autobiographical and the most experimental book to date from South Korean master Han Kang Written while on a writer's residency in Warsaw a city palpably scarred by the violence of the past the narrator finds herself haunted by the story of her older sister who di. Music is often associated with memory I often hear a song and I m taken back to a time to a place to a person to an experience that I never will be able to regain to a moment that song embodies that will forever be lost in the endless river of life For Han Kang the colour white has a similar effect it mashes open the floodgates to her mind and drops torrents of memory over the body of her writing Why do old memories constantly drift to the surface Because they never leave us Because they never stop defining who we are and shaping our paths Han Kang is haunted by her past by her memories and by her dreams of the dead There is a certain sense of guilt of sorrow that permeates her own life a life that exists when another did not This hangs over the writing and the author s conscience forever digging outwards from the back of her mind it s a blazing

Formerly obliterated in the Second World War their identities blur and overlap as the narrator wonders 'Can I give this life to you' The White Book is a book like no other It is a meditation on a colour on the tenacity and fragility of the human spirit and our attempts to graft new life from the ashes of destructionphotographs in print edition only. A short and intensely personal and poetic meditation but a very difficult one to encapsulate in a reviewThe starting point is a simple list of white things but the book is haunted by many darker undertones I am not sure how much I understood but it felt profoundly human spare and elegant every word chargedThis is my second book from the Man Booker International longlist I had already read Die My Love and bought this one before it was announced

    I read this book because I recently enjoyed this author’s novel The Vegetarian The White Book is not a novel; it’s a collection of mostly one page mini essays almost meditations on things that are white The focus is on loneliness loss and mortality Several are about the whiteness of pain the author suffers

    I am uite unsure how to review this brilliant little book I think it is something that needs to be experienced rather than read about Told in a series of very short musings on different white things Han Kang circles her own grief and Warsaw’s scarred history in a way that I found absolutely moving I read the book mostly in one sitting it is very short and can only recommend doing that This way the interplay between the blank sp

    Hmm I don't know what to make of this bookIt's elegant in a minimalist subdued kind of way The font size is minuscule there's a lot of white space and empty pagesThere are some nice passages but also a whole lot of simple simplistic and I don't get the point kind of writing writing for the sake of writing or better said I was reading it and

    Shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker International Prize The White Book offers a spare meditation on memory loss and the color white The book consists of a series of lyrical prose poems each centering on a white object from a flake of snow to a baby swaddle; across all pieces Han Kang recounts piecemeal the traumatic story of her mother’s giving birth to a stillborn daughter years before she had the writer herself The concept
