3.0 out of 5 stars 'Tokyo was mirrored - upside down', 10 Aug 2013
Simon Barrett "Il penseroso" (london, england) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Isle of Dreams (Japanese Literature Series) (Paperback)
This novel - novella, almost - of urban perambulation recalls Teju Cole's Open City, but it's better than that rather strained exercise. This narrator's aesthetic sense is of a quite different order! The translation is exemplary, and definitely English I'd say, despite the usual envision, toward for towards, alcohol stove for spirit stove. Where now? A little ramble with Robert Walser?
