Sold out | Han Kang in conversation with Max Porter
Monday 13th November 18:30 at London - Tottenham Court Road
Man Booker International Prize-winning author Han Kang’s new novel, The White Book, is her most autobiographical and experimental to date. Following her phenomenal success with the Vegetarian and Human Acts, Kang will discuss this latest work with Granta senior editor – and author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers – Max Porter.
The White Book follows the success of The Vegetarian and Human Acts, and has reunited Kang with her MBI-winning translator Deborah Smith.
The ticket price is redeemable against the book, and Kang will be signing copies afterwards.
About The White Book
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 died a mere two hours after birth. A fragmented exploration of white things – the swaddling bands that were also her shroud, the breast milk she did not live to drink, the blank page on which the narrator herself attempts to reconstruct the story – unfold in a powerfully poetic distillation.
