really liked it
bookshelves: translated

I don’t remember what prompted me to pick this up. Some author I was admiring mentioned this in an interview I think. And I found it cheap online. And it’s 130 pages. Low risk. What a delight. A novella translated from French about working in Japan. Properly funny but trading also in loneliness and feelings of inadequacy that bubble up in the workplace. Quite unlike anything else and a delightful discovery.
