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 simila...

It’s been thrilling to see the recent high acclaim and popularity for Han Kang’s powerful distinctive writing. She won the Man Booker International Prize in 2016 for “The Vegetarian” and her novel “Human Acts” is one of the most devastating portrayals of the victims and survivors of mass warfare...

Han Kang and Deborah Smith are a match made in heaven. I feel its genius every time I finish reading any of Kang's books in Smith's translation.
This one is a very special to me. The City she refers to in White Book, is my hometown, Warsaw.
The book at its core is a meditation on grief. Kang juxt...

Aangrijpende poëtische mijmeringen over de dood en verlies. Vorm en inhoud zijn één met een bestendig zo goed als lege bladspiegel en veel witte bladzijden: de hoofdstukjes bestaan uit enkele paragrafen en een nieuw hoofdstukje start telkens op de rechterbladzijde.
De mooie beelden sporen wel aan...

Having loved The Vegetarian, I knew I needed to read this and finally got my mitts on it recently! And what a reading experience it was once more! Who knew that the subject of such simple white things - lace curtains, sugar cubes, rice, clouds... to name but a few, could conjure up such powerful...

A fragile thing of beauty. Gossamer light. Not brittle by any means, but slight all the same, oh so slight, which is why I gave it 4 stars rather than the full complement as with her previous 2 books. Size may not be everything, but it does count for something.
Impressions, images, metaphors insp...

Han Kang’s previous novels that have been translated into English have this way of not looking at their central character or message too directly, and she circles around them, showing you different perspectives on them. This novel/non-fiction/poetry/whatever short book does do that, but also feel...

Beautiful, sad and touching with all the grace of honest words and stark pages.
The White Book by Han Kang (author of Man Booker International Prize winner, The Vegetarian) is the latest book to be translated into English. When I saw this beautiful book and read about how it was a really experime...

Weisse. Leere. Bedeutung.
Die Bücher von Han Kang hatten für mich schon immer etwas sehr faszinierendes, mitfühlendes. Doch mit "The White Book" ist es der Autorin nun endgültig gelungen, die menschliche Zerbrechlichkeit, die extreme Feinfühligkeit und das Dasein in wenigen Worten perfekt wiederzu...
