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 from migrainesAmazing how many things that lend themselves to symbolism are white when you think of it So we have pieces on baby gowns rice fog breast milk salt sugar pills hair the Milky Way bones ashes and so on There s also a lot about winter snow snowflakes frost sleet The narrator is visiting Warsaw but her own country of Korea has harsh winters and she also visits the Artic to see the midnight sun So there s a lot on winter whiteness snow snowflakes ice sleet frost A couple of examples of good writing At times my body feels like a prison a solid shifting island threading through the crowd A sealed chamber carrying all the memories of the life I have lived and the mother tongue from which they are inseparable The stubborn the isolation the vivid these nlooked for fragments the oppressive their weight So that is seems the place I flee to is not so much a city on the other side of the world as further into my own interior In the chapter Frost Trees shiver off their leaves incrementally lightening their burden Solid objects like stones or buildings appear subtly dense Seen from behind men and women bundled Mediterranean Men Bundle up in heavy coats are saturated with a mute presentiment that of people beginning to endure The author occasionally givess poetry Because at some point you will inevitably cast me asideWhen I am at my weakest when I am most in need of helpYou will turn your back on me cold and irrevocableAnd that is something perfectly clear to meAnd I cannot now return to the time before that knowledge I enjoyed the book It was like meditating The author b 1970 has written a half dozen novels of which three have been translated into English Her book The Vegetarian won the 2016 Man Booker prize for translations This book reviewed here The White Book was shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker prize Top photo from marketplacecanvacomPhoto of Warsaw from gettyimagescomThe author from lithubcom I am The Indian Tycoons Marriage Deal uitensure 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 spaces on the page the photography and the writing worked to create an immersive experienceHan Kang s writing is economical there is not a spare word to be found It gives the impression of deep concentration and thoughtfulness which worked extremely well for this book Another way to describe her prose would be elegant and precise I loved this I find there to be something fascinating in being able to write about personal trauma in this way rather than it reading clinical it made the book all the profound for meI have recently read Maggie Nelson s Bluets which much in the same way deals with a colour blue But the two books are radically different besides their obvious similarities Nelson s writing is a lot visceral and blunt whereas Han Kang creates the illusion of distance while being obviously affected I am very glad to have read of those these in short successionThere is now only one book of hers left that has been translated to English and I haven t read I am a huge fan of Han Kang s writingYou can find this review and other thoughts on books on my blog 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 s interesting and the narrative s powerful but the minimalist poems themselves alternate between feeling Holding Tight (Five in a Bed Book 3) understated andnderdeveloped Worth checking out paired with The Vegetarian I hold nothing dear Not the place where I live not the door I pass through every day not even damn it my life In the beautiful mysterious world of colours white retains an exceptional position White is purity light clarity sanctity fragility White is the symbol of the The Mistress of Pemberley: An Erotic Pride Prejudice Sequel (Secrets of Pemberley Book 1) union between two people and the colour of mourning in East Asian culture In Greece white is the colour of purity and the sun The houses in our islands are white washed to reflect its rays In China white is worn in funerals to symbolise gratitude and in K This is the 3rd book I ve read by Han Kang a phenomenal contemporary Korean writer The Vegetarian was fierce with haunting prose making it very hard to put down It was gut wrenching painful for me personally having survived the horrific years when our daughter was starving herself to deathYetI knew I was reading something brilliant I became an instant fan of Han KangThe next book I read by this young exceptional author was Human Acts It was brutal one that I continued to feel its depths long after I read it Do you ever throw your handsp in the air literary clueless in nderstanding why people are cruel mean cold hearted TO YOUwelltake it 1000 steps Why do we have such extreme violence in the world Bloody frightening riots killing hundreds of people at a time Han wrote about how a single event changed a nation in South Korea Both books were devastatingly powerful literary masterpieces about humanity The White Book is eually a masterpiece one that possibly took courage to write than her first two booksgiven she is blood related to this story Note The White Book does tell a storybut is not written in the traditional way a novel is Han reflects on her list of white things in short chapters and inserts other relating topics telling a story from personal history imagination loss grief hope human fragility and love At the start Han says In the spring when I decided to write about white things the first thing I did was make a list Swaddling bandsNewborn gownSaltSnowIceMoonRiceWavesYulan White Bird Laughing whitely Blank paperWhite DogWhite HairShroud With each item I wrote down a ripple of agitation ran through me I felt that yes I needed to write this book and the process of writing it would be transformative would itself transform into something like white ointment applied to a swelling like gauze laid over a wound Something I needed Han s hopes in writing this book was to be transformative It s a story that is part of her personal history It was definitely transformative to me I looked at life and death in ways I haven t before Han opens a new pathway in which to examine life and death past history and how it shapes our current and future selves Starting with the title of this book The White Book I began this book by sitting for 10 minutes meditating simply preparing myself to open a Han Kang book I wondered about the title what might it mean to Han I ve learned a little from the 3 books by Han the titles of her books are ALWAYS POWERFUL with much depth than first glance So I wondered why white things The word WHITE in western cultures symbolizes purity elegance peace and cleanliness bri. 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.

Des traditionally wear white dresses at their weddings But in China Korea and some Asian countries white represents death morning and bad luck and is traditionally worn at funerals I honestly will never EVER think of a newborn s birth their LIFE if they should die soon after birth the same again EVER AFTER READING THIS BOOKI know women who gave birth and their baby died just hours after their birth ALL I saw which wasn t it enough was the immediate grief I saw something else which Han presented She shifted my thoughts about an early death Still morning still deep sadness from the sudden deathbut what difference does this short life bring to others I kept reading and my mind expanded In Han s book we learn that a 22 year mother gives birth to a premature baby girl She is dead in two hours From there as I continued reading I began to look how this baby girl s life for two hours spoke to Han the inspiration for this book comes from true events in Han s life at some point it occurred to me that if I had been similarity visited myself by my mothers first child who had lived just two hours I would have been tterly obliviousBecause the girl had never learn language at all For an hour her eyes opened held them in the direction of our mother s face but her optic nerves never had time to awaken and so that face had remained beyond reach For her there would have been only a voice the mother s voice of grief DON T DIE FOR GOD S SAKE DON T DIE Unintelligible words the only words she was ever to hear More memories The year after the mother lost her first child she had another premature baby Had those lives made it safely past the point of crisis my own birth which followed three years later and that of my brother four years after would not have come about This life needed only one of Malones Vow us to live it If you had lived beyond those first few hours I would not be living now My life means yours is impossible Only in the gap between darkness and light only in that blue tinged breach do we manage to make out each other s faces The narrator was vitality aware of walking side by side with her sister The sister she never knew the sister she wished for the sister who the narrator loved They shared a profoundnspoken language together YOUR EYES I saw differently when I looked through your eyes I walked differently when I walked with your body I wanted to show you clean things Before brutality sadness despair pain clean things were only for you clean things above all But I didn t come off as I intended Again and again I peered into your eyes as though searching for form in a deep black mirror There are other short stories about a dog a white butterfly a white bird wild ducks niversity classmates who had studied literature together their deathand their life rejuvenation revivification and White Flowers The brief March blooming of two yulans Touching story Another achingly beautiful book by Han Kang A woman I wish was my own sister with it s new ways of looking at life and death will stay with me for a long time Grateful to be offered an advance copy by Crown Publishing Netgalley and Han Kang 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 ndertones I am not sure how much I nderstood 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 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 s 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 reminder one she endures with every step This life only needed one of Transcending Taboos us to live it If you had lived beyond those first few hours I would not be living now My life means yours is impossible Only in the gap between darkness and light only in that blue tinged breach do we manage to make out each other s facesSuch a thingestions the very nature of writing itself What s it for Is it to entertain Is it to tell a story Is it to communicate a thought a dream an idea or can it have another purposeIt can be cleansing it can be cathartic and it can even be a means of finding oneself By exploring such a simple idea as a colour a colour that embodies much to the writer it allows her to explore the dark recesses of her mind and come to terms with emotions and experiences that have hung over her for a lifetime The White Book is a powerful evocation of human spirit of human pain and suffering but it s also a book about learning to live with our daemons and our darkest experiences it s a book about life and it s also a book about death it s a book about the small amount of stark whiteness that separates the two Such a difficult book to describe difficult to review A very Black Bottom Stomp unconventional narrative but the writing is just gorgeous Sad at times a reflection on the sister that she never knewsing the color white Descriptions of the feelings these things invoke politics reminders of the past present Meaningful Things that make one ponder ask Geographies, Mobilities, and Rhythms over the Life-Course uestionsLace curtain Is it because of some billowing whiteness withins Tempting Kate (Regency Quartet, unsullied inviolate that our encounters with obje 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 not getting much out of it despite wanting to I don t know it s one of those concept books You definitely have to be in the right kind of moodframe of mind to appreciate itOr maybe not It s not terrible I wouldn t call it great either It s probably one of those books you

Realised that this was because I had been trying to distance myself from her and so I rewrote the whole chapter from the beginning I struggled to write precisely her feeling of being The New Goddess unable to press the button of the dictaphone And I wrote the final sentence of the chapter please don t die in Seon ju s voice Don t die that was something I wanted to say to her to all the living tosLater realised that these words were also sub consciously influenced by a story her mother had told her one she retells here My mother s first child died I was told less than two hours into life I was told that she was a girl with a face as white as a crescent moon rice cake Though she was very small two months premature her features were clearly defined I can never forget my mother told me the moment she opened her two black eyes and turned them towards my faceAt the time my parents were living in an isolated house in the countryside near the primary school where my father taught My mother s due date was still far off so she was completely Firedance (Aubrey Knight, unprepared when one morning her waters broke There was no one around The village s sole telephone was in a tiny shop by the bus stop twenty minutes away My father wouldn t be back from work for another six hours It was early winter the first frost of the year My twenty two year old mother crawled into the kitchen and boiled some water to sterilise a pair of scissors Fumbling in her sewing box she found some white cloth that would do for a newborn s gownThe White Book is her beautifully poignant tribute to her her eonni the elder sister she never had the little girl with the face of a crescent moon rice cake with her two black eyes dressed in the white gown that wassed to swaddle her and later after her two brief hours of life served as her funeral shroud White as a moon shaped rice cake never made much sense The Buzzards That Circle the Throne (The Peacock King, until at six I was old enough to help out with making the rice cakes for Chuseok forming the dough into small crescent moons Before being steamed those bright white shapes of rice dough are a thing so lovely they do not seem of this world Only afterwards dishedp on a plate with a pine needle garnish did they become disappointingly matter of fact Glistening with roasted sesame oil their colour and texture transformed by heat and steam they were tasty of course but The Monster in My Closet utterlynlike their former lovelinessSo when my mother said white as rice cake I realised she meant a rice cake before it is steamed A face as startlingly pristine as that These thoughts made my chest grow tight as though compressed with an iron weight started the book on an extended visit to Warsaw as an aside she finished it in my home county of Norfolk although Warsaw is referred to only as the city in the book and another key inspiration was aerial footage she saw of the city footage shot in Spring 1945 by an American plane The city seen from far above appeared as though mantled with snow A grey white sheet of snow or ice on which a light dusting of soot had settled sullying it with dappled stains But as the plane gets lowe the snow is revealed as the ashes of the burnt and almost entirely destroyed city Visiting Warsaw some 70 years later she realises The fortresses of the old arter the splending palace the lakeside villa on the outskirts where royalty once summered all are fakes They are all new things painstakingly reconstructed based on photographs pictures maps Where a pillar or perhaps the lowest part of a wall happens to have survived it has been incorporated into the new structure The boundaries which separate old from new the seams bearing witness to destruction lie conspicuously exposedIt was on that day as I walked through the park that she first came into my mindA person who has met the same fate as that city The White Book was published as in Korean one of two Korean words for white the other As the author explained in an interviewThe Korean title of this book is the single syllable hwin If hayan indicates the white as an ordinary colour in hwin there might be a certain sadness the colour of fate The white of this book s title is a fundamental colour passing from a baby s swaddling cloths to a shroud through the white of salt and snow and frost and waves the wings of a living butterfly and the wings of the same creature grown transparent in deathThe White Book is both a fictional novel and in the author s words could be read as narrative poem in 65 fragments each focused around something that is white a newborn s gown salt snow ice blank paper fog that vast soundless ndulation between this world and the next each cold water molecule formed of drenched black darkness etcNB there are some similarities in concept to bookBluets 6798263 by Maggie Nelson but while Nelson s work is erudite an essay based on blue s book is poetic moving heartbreakingThe first section I tells all in this same format of brief prose poems how the author came to write the book but in the longest and 2nd section her she writes as if her sister had lived and was in the city instead of her As I have imagined her she walks this city s streets At a reading I attended the author explained how she wanted to lend her body to the characters in Human Acts and to lend her life to her sister here And in the last section All Whiteness the narration return to the 1st person as she addresses her sister I wanted to show you clean things Before brutality sadness despair filth pain clean things that were only for you clean things above all But it didn t come off like that Again and again I peered into your eyes as though searching for form in a deep black mirrorAnd there is also a nod to the events described in Human Acts when seeing wreaths laid in the city she is visiting the narrator thought of certain instances in her own country s history the country that she had left to come here of the dead that had been insufficiently mournedAs for the translation there has been some controversy around Deborah Smith s work on The Vegetarian in particular Frankly some of the commentary has missed the point entirely as what ltimately matters is the end result the work that is presented to the English reader and there only two things need be said1 The author works has a very close relationship with her translator and is clearly delighted with the resultalthough see for her take in the Korean press she clearly was a little disappointed with the factual mistakes in The Vegetarian and much happier with the translations of the later books plus see acknowledges herself that translation does mean the need to produce a different work2 As a reader too the resulting is truly wonderfulSmith does have to wrestle with some ntranslatable puns eg the Korean riddle What is a dog that s a dog but doesn t bark that gives the English answer fog which at least rhymes the Korean playing on Korean fog not dog And the Korean near homonyms for elder sister and front teeth If I had to make one small point there is a passage written in the 3rd person where the narrator suddenly refers to our mother the Korean collective would be much natural here see but rather jars in EnglishThe English edition is also illustrated with some beautiful photos of performance art did around the time of the Korean book s launch eg making a small baby dress from gauze making for a truly beautiful powerful and moving work of artSources and a verbal discussion between the author and her English publisher Max Porter which I was fortunate enough to atten. 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.
