Han's older sister was born two months premature and lived less than two hours. Her young mother gave birth on her own, in a rural village, in the heart of winter, miles from a telephone. 

The White Book gives the narrator's dead sister an imaginary life. "I think of her coming here instead of me," the narrator writes, "to this curiously familiar city, whose death and life resemble her own."
