From the author of The Vegetarian, winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2016


From the author of The Vegetarian and Human Acts comes a book like no other. The White Book is a meditation on colour, beginning with a list of white things. It is a book about mourning, rebirth and the tenacity of the human spirit. It is a stunning investigation of the fragility, beauty and strangeness of life.


Translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith.
