A True Novel
by Minae Mizumura
“In Japan, a fictionalized account of someone’s life is called a true novel. The reviews all likened this book to ‘a far eastern version of Wuthering Heights.’ It is so much more. This book comes in two volumes and takes place on two continents. The characters are equally tortured souls and resilient souls. The language is lyrical. The extended family ties in this book kept my interest throughout.”
