  1. Loneliness floats, mixes with the gray of the clouds and turns into ghoulish substance that permeates, creates a different world, a world of shadows, an illusion The illusion becomes a way to manage reality, a parallel universe, some way to deal with the dark forces of the world because otherwise, how can one look forward One refuses to look forward, instead, the present becomes a way of life, thereby illuminating the halfheartedness of parenthood, the selfishness of individuality The world is j [...]

  6. la passivit eletta a stile di vita non mi aspettavo molto, leggendo questo libro, invece devo dire che mi ha piacevolmente sorpresa, intanto non la lagna Yoshimoto style che mi aspettavo, anzi la protagonista si una perdente, nel senso di una donna che si arresa e passivamente accetta il suo destino, ma si intravede una forza tra i suoi gesti e le sue scelte, sia pure fatte seguendo la corrente, che lascia presagire un senso compiuto magari in senso confuciano come se l accettazione si dovesse t [...]


  7. Subtle multi layered story telling with some vivid imagery both dreamlike and realistic Strong characterizations with a twist in this feminist tale of a single woman in Japan struggling to negotiate family and societal pressures and mostly succeeding despite oceans of self doubt at times.
