Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami Translated Book, 140 g
One night when she is drinking alone in a local bar, Tsukiko finds herself sitting next to her former high school teacher. Over the coming months they share food and drink sake, and as the seasons pass- from spring cherry blossom to autumnal mushrooms- Tsukiko and her teacher come to develop a hesitant intimacy which tilts awkwardly and poignantly towards love.
Translated from the Japanese by Allison Markin Powell.
