What other readers are saying about this title:
AnneCP said:
Quiet, elegant, lyrical story of an unlikely relationship between two troubled individuals. Ogawa’s prose feels distinctly Eastern in the respectful distance between the title characters and lack of dramatic climax, but it works precisely because of this context. As brief a journey as it is, this novel will float across your memory for years to come. A perfect book club choice.
