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 reminder one she endures with every step This life only needed one of 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 thing uestions 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
