'A brilliant psychogeography of grief, moving as it does between place, history and memory... Poised and never flinches from serene dignity... The White Book is a mysterious text, perhaps in part a secular prayer book... Translated peerlessly by Smith, [it] succeeds in reflecting Han's urgent desire to transcend pain with language' -- --Guardian
'There is beauty and pain in every sentence and image, made sharper by their simplicity and aching honesty' -- New Internationalist
'There is a crispness to [Han's]pieces evocative of the stark luminescence of white... The White Book is a shimmering, evocative work' --National UAE
'Wonderful. A quietly gripping contemplation on life, death and the existential impact of those who have gone before' -- Eimear McBride
'Han Kang is a genius' -- Lisa McInerney
'Delicate and thoughtful and concise and dense and strong; this is the kind of writing I like to read slowly' ---- Jon McGregor, Best Books of 2017, Guardian
