ahhh... me and japan. such a long and complicated relationship we have. i love japanese food and many japanese films and everycutething silvia brought me back from there. but i dislike murakami and mishima and abe and most of the literature i have read. (ishiguro does not count, obviously) but i keep trying. and i like this publisher - the last thing i read of theirs (Now You're One of Us), was pretty good. and this is good too. i liked reading it directly after reading that freud book - another example of the complicated relationship. this one is like a japanese henry james, but henry james doing ghost-story, not washington square.it is a nice little spooky family story with a bad-cat-and-little-girl team.
