Overview

Shortlisted for the Man Booker International 2018

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.
