Taichi Yamada worked at the world-renowned Shochiku film studios until he set out on a highly successful career as a freelance scriptwriter and novelist. Winner of the Yamamoto Shugoro Prize for the best human-interest novel, Strangers is his English-language debut.
This is a modern Japanese ghost story with a twist which has a twist on its twist. It’s beautifully written, quite gentle – romantic – not scary, hypnotic, lyrical and highly recommended.Comparison: Haruki Murakami, Ben Sherwood, Alice Hoffman.Similar this month: None
