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...

I don't know what to make of this book.
It's elegant, in a minimalist, subdued kind of way.
The font size is minuscule, there's a lot of white space and empty pages.
There are some nice passages, but also a whole lot of simple, simplistic, and "I don't get the point" kind of writing - writin...

In the spring, when I decided to write about white things the first thing I did was to make a list.
Swaddling bands. Newborn gown. Salt. Snow. Ice. Moon. Rice. Waves. Yulan. White bird. “Laughing Whitely”. Blank paper. White dog. White hair. Shroud.
With each item I wrote down, a ripple of agita...

Book 3/13 from a very strong Man Booker International longlist - and like the other 4 I've read a shortlist contender!
"제발 죽지마. 한 시간쯤 더 흘러 아기는 죽었다.
죽은 아기를 가슴에 품고 모로 누워 그 몸이 점점 싸늘해지는 걸 견뎠다.
더이상 눈물이 흐르지 않았다."
"For God's sake don't die. Around an hour later, the baby was dead.
They lay there on the ki...

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...

The comparisons to Maggie Nelson's Bluets will be pretty inevitable and unsurprising but here it is: this reminded me of Bluets. Although, that's only in terms of its form. It's a novel (?) written in fragments and unified thematically by meditation on the colour white.
While I read it as a novel...

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...

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...
