Reviews

"These are the stories of Japanese women struggling to find themselves in the 21st century; by reading them westerners will likely see themselves reflected through a prism of shared hopes and disappointments." -- Colleen Mondor, "Bookslut" "[Kawakami's essays are] brilliantly written, and a perfect example of how similar bad marriages are, regardless of their setting." --Bookslut.com
