A real Novel starts in manhattan within the Nineteen Sixties, the place we meet Taro, a relentlessly formidable jap immigrant attempting to make his fortune. Flashbacks and multilayered tales demonstrate his existence: an impoverished upbringing as an orphan, his eventual upward push to wealth and success—despite racial and sophistication prejudice—and an obsession with a woman from an prosperous kinfolk that has haunted him all his lifestyles. A precise Novel then widens into an exam of Japan’s westernization and the emergence of a center class.
The winner of Japan’s prestigious Yomiuri Literature Prize, Mizumura has written a stunning novel, with love at its center, that finds, exceptionally, the ability of storytelling.
