Kang weaves together a series of short poetic vignettes of tales and symbols focused on the color in question, from the author's young mother who lost her first child merely two hours after its birth, to small yet vivid meditations of the writer held up at a writer's residency in Warsaw. At its core the book is about loss and grief, with incredible imagery and depth for such a slim text, over a relationship that should have been, but was taken long before Kang had any opportunity to discover it. If anything I've read as of late deserves one or more rereads it's this wonderfully evocative piece of prose. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
