Strange Weather in Tokyo

Author(s): Hiromi Kawakami; Allison Markin Powell (Translator)

Novel

An award-winning novel from one of Japan's most exciting literary voices: a short, simple and touching story of an unlikely love that blossoms across generations, and between seasons.

Gentle, pared back and delightful, Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami is a love story. Like the amazing Japanese food described throughout this book, the relationship Tsukiko forms with her former teacher is careful, precise and beautiful. Kawakami is an author I will be searching out again - her writing is poetic and delicate, with a wry twist. - Stella
