Review by

I haven't read a lot of Yoshimoto's work - just Kitchen before this - but I found myself enthralled with this book. At first I found it odd. There was little sense of direction and I couldn't seem to fall in step with the book. After I managed to accept this lack of focus as okay, I began to really love this book. Maybe it's because I'm going through my own mini-existential crisis right now, maybe it's something else. Who knows? Regardless, this is one I'll return to.
