Written while on a writer's residency in Warsaw, a city palpably scarred by the violence of the past, the narrator walks unfamiliar streets, lined by buildings formerly obliterated in the Second World and finds herself haunted by the story of her older sister, who died a mere two hours after birth.
Autobiographical, experimental and illustrated with black and white photographs Kang's latest book is a meditation on a colour, on the tenacity and fragility of the human spirit, and our attempts to graft new life from the ashes of destruction.
