Just finished a book by another Japanese writer, this one with young people set in the more recent years. I was actually reading another book of speeches, but it was left behind when I moved so I can’t finish it yet.
Banana Yoshimoto’s style is contemplative and fresh. If you like Murakami, most likely you’ll like her.
Next review: “Go Set a Watchman”.
Another post on Eating with Chopsticks is coming, of course!
