From the publisher

'I loved this book for its depth and perception, for its beauty and eerie rhythms, but most of all for its wonderfully dream-like spell. It's breathtaking' Brandon Taylor

A student moves to the city to research Gothic nudes, renting an apartment from a painter, Agnes, who lives in another town with her husband. One day, Agnes arrives in the city and settles into the upstairs studio.

Agnes tells stories of her youth, her family, her marriage, and ideas for her art. As the months pass, it becomes clear that Agnes might not have a place to return to. Her stories are frenetic; her art scattered and unfinished, white paint on a white canvas.

White on White is a sharp exploration of what it means to be truly vulnerable and laid bare.

'Deeply humane, quietly devastating, mesmerisingly beautiful' Olivia Sudjic

'Gentle, mysterious and profound' Marina Abramovic

'Enthralling' Observer

'An exceptionally elegant, intelligent, and original writer' Sigrid Nunez
