A Japanese Ian McEwan,
This review is from: Now You're One of Us (Paperback)
This has that lovely quality of being both peaceful and gently disturbing throughout. Right from the start, you sense there will be a punchline, but it stays just out of reach for a long time. Fantastically, even after the main revelation of the book, it just keeps on getting better.
The characters are well drawn and the atmosphere is perfectly evoked. If you like other Japanese literature, this shouldn't disappoint. If it's your first time, and you like Ian McEwan or George Orwell, then dive right in.
