I love novels that are so good that I just can not stop reading it. Like this novel of Japanese author.
Description from bookdepository:
Growing up in the suburbs in post-war Japan, it seemed to Hajime that everyone but him had brothers and sisters. His sole companion was Shimamoto, also an only child. Together they spent long afternoons listening to her father's record collection. But when his family moved away, the two lost touch. Now Hajime is in his thirties. After a decade of drifting he has found happiness with his loving wife and two daughters, and success running a jazz bar. Then Shimamoto reappears. She is beautiful, intense, enveloped in mystery. Hajime is catapulted into the past, putting at risk all he has in the present.
And right now I am reading this novel:
And in this novel I already got an idea what to read next :)
I love luxury of having time to read.
I had a lovely week. It was full of swimming (I swam twice in the outside public swimming pool and yesterday whole day in the sea). Picking up blueberries. Working in my vegetables garden. Spending time with Wolfie (and fighting with him, he is a rebelious teen). Trying to save the friendship that was lost because of my infertility, this is a theme for one of the future posts.
Life is good.
